    Staffers at this financial advisory firm put in some long hours this year, but the extra effort was rewarded with baseball tickets, Starbucks gift cards, and free breakfasts during crunch time. Regular bonuses and overnight family retreats provide “meaningful recognition,” and community outreach events contribute to a “wonderful” work environment. Read the Great Place to Work review here.
