    “Have Fun” is a core value at this property and casualty insurer. Four ping-pong tables and a popcorn machine sit outside their cafeteria. Their summer family picnic is packed with rides, $250 door prizes, an adult casino and human foosball (a life-sized version of the popular table game). The lucky winner of Bossy Bingo left the festival with $5,000. Selfie days and beach bashes come together with high salaries (an average of $16K above industry average) and generous merit increases. Their Sheboygan headquarters boasts the country’s largest flagpole at 400 feet. Read the Great Place to Work review here.
