    Employees at the Detroit-based mortgage lender (the biggest in the U.S.) are proud of the company’s commitment to revitalize its hometown. “The fact that Quicken is essentially redeveloping an entire major American city is an amazing achievement,” says one. The company has spent more than $5.6 billion buying and restoring buildings downtown since 2010, helped more than 15,000 local homeowners avoid tax foreclosure, worked to clean up blighted neighborhoods, and invested millions in local entrepreneurs. Meanwhile, employees enjoy award-winning training and development programs, including the Z Games, a citywide scavenger hunt “intended to push [employees’] personal limits and reveal their leadership style.”
