    This mortgage lender for military members and vets has a “be passionate and have fun” motto that translates into Office Olympics, dodgeball tournaments, and field days. Free gym memberships and snacks, along with optional subsidized mission trips to places like Jamaica and Haiti, put VU “in an entirely different league.” Read Great Place to Work review here.
