    The employee discount is a nice enticement for anyone, but people who retire at age 55 or older after 10 to 15 years at Nordstrom get the deal for life. The upscale retailer also makes a point to recognize staff achievements with parties and special awards. And diversity is a priority—people of color make up 45% of technology staff.
