    Celebrating its ninth consecutive year on the list, the cloud HR software company made headlines last May after going private in an $11 billion deal. At Ultimate, along with fully paid health care premiums and unlimited paid time off, employees laud the “culture of thanks,” with top execs surprising “UltiPeeps” with office gifts like fresh flowers. When it comes to travel, any employee can go on a learning development trip, and company-paid getaways to spots such as the Bahamas are open to a wide range of employees who meet goals, not just blockbuster salespeople.
