“It has been life changing to work here; I never knew I could look forward to coming into a 9-5 job as much as I do! VitalSmarts is a culture filled with pride, we stand up for each other, we know when to be serious and how to play but most of all, those I work with feel like family.”

  • Quarterly bonuses
  • Profit sharing
  • $250 gym reimbursement each year
  • Team “Funtivities”
  • Company lunches

“I enjoy having competent managers who understand the jobs of those whom they manage. For software engineers, this is actually a rare experience. I have observed very little in the way of political battles, competition, and discord among my managers and their peers. They seem to gel very well.”

  • Unlimited PTO
  • Quarterly team-building exercises
  • Cell phone bill reimbursement
  • Weekly massages
  • Free soda and snacks


“We are consistently sharing new technologies and skills with each other, regardless of team or skill-level. We have multiple meetings, technical and non-technical, to share strategies, frameworks, and processes in order to improve the overall performance of the company.”

  • Unlimited PTO
  • Wellness coaching and gym reimbursement
  • Gold ski passes
  • Subsidized lunches and free food
  • Free ancestry.com subscription  

CHG Healthcare Services
“I believe the company understands the importance of providing growth and development opportunities, and the impact it has on retention and employee satisfaction. They are doing a good job at providing these opportunities.”

  • Generous PTO
  • Flexible hours
  • On-site gym
  • Time off to volunteer

Clyde Companies, Inc.
“Everyone I have met here has a very positive attitude and does the best they can with whatever task they are given. I've also noticed any opportunity can be a learning opportunity—questions are encouraged and adequate time is taken to resolve questions and concerns for the benefit and mutual understanding of all.”

  • Profit sharing
  • 401(k) match
  • Wellness program with financial incentives
  • Company cell phones, tablets available
  • Company vehicles available

“The culture here is great. There are high expectations—but not many rules. It's easy to rise to the top, but you can also have fun. Coming to Domo feels like a breath of fresh air compared to previous employers I've worked for. I have a much better work/life balance.”

  • Tuition reimbursement
  • Flexible scheduling
  • Employee stock purchasing plans
  • 4 paid weeks paternity leave
  • Free health coach

Health Equity
“Health Equity offers a mentoring program where anyone can spend time with another department they may be interested in to first see if they really would like it, and if it would be a good fit. This way those who apply for internal openings know what they are getting into, creating satisfied employees and resulting in less turnover … And they pay for additional training outside the organization.”

  • HSA matching
  • “Culture Club” employee outings and activities
  • Paid volunteer time
  • Robust wellness program
  • Supplied snacks and drinks 

“The culture and environment at Instructure is what makes this place tick. You see it in our marketing efforts and in the meetings with Josh Coates. Every VP and Officer talks about the importance of the culture. I know that they believe in what they have created here and they continue to show that even with the amount of growth that we are experiencing. It is really awesome to see a company that values its culture so much.”
