Just about every benefit known to corporate America–on-site child care, swimming pools, medical clinics, fitness centers, car detailings, nail salons, shoe repairs–are on offer at this software company based in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina. Said one employee: “I get massages, pick up prescriptions, get my hair done, take photography classes, get physical therapy. The list is endless.” But the employee quickly added: “It’s not just about the ‘what.’ It’s about the place itself. The campus is beautiful and quite tranquil. I can take a walk during lunch and find myself far away. I know it sounds corny, but I enjoy just driving into campus in the morning.” Read the Great Place to Work review here.
