Fictional perks from TV’s great workplaces

Jan 24, 2014

Scandal

Workplace: Olivia Pope and Associates

Why it's a great place to work: You can commit any crime you want and no one will ever know, thanks to Olivia Pope and your colleagues.

Grey's Anatomy

Workplace: Seattle Grace Mercy West Hospital

Why it's a great place to work: The hospital employs a bevy of attractive doctors ready to save both your life and your soul. A stint at Seattle Grace guarantees you'll find a significant other -- or, at the very least, a passionate fling in one of the on-call rooms.

Mad Men

Workplace: Sterling Cooper & Partners

Why it's a great place to work: There's no scarcity of alcohol in the offices of SC&P -- or naps to help nurse your aching hangover.

Homeland

Workplace: CIA

Why it's a great place to work: A gig with Carrie and Saul allows for tons of travel. Your passport will be overflowing with stamps -- though the locals you're visiting aren't always friendly.

Orange is the New Black

Why it's a great place to work: You'll never have to worry about what to wear on your first (or second or third or fourth...) day of work.

Suits

Workplace: Pearson Darby Specter

Why it's a great place to work: You know that law firm you've been dying to get a job at, but your degree isn't from Harvard? No worries. Just have a photographic memory -- as well as a penchant for quoting classic flicks -- and no degree's necessary.

Breaking Bad

Why it's a great place to work: You'll never have to fret about having a boring 9-5 schedule at Walter White's operation: Employees make their own schedules.

Parenthood

Workplace: The Luncheonette recording studio

Why it's a great place to work: The Luncheonette's charm lies in its revolving door of rockstars and low-key vibe. It's the ultimate environment for creative types, though nepotism runs high at the studio; if your last name's not Braverman, it may be hard to get your foot in the door.
