 Employees in WA State Are Thrilled to Work at These 50 Companies

The employees who are fortunate enough to work at one of these top 50 Washington companies likely don’t have many reasons to complain about their bosses strolling by their desk unannounced to tell them they have to come in on Saturdays (or whatever day off they get).

Now, let's dive a little deeper into what makes these top companies so special:

Fun Co-workers:

Not having to deal with co-workers who make your life miserable, create too many workplace rules, or micromanage you, is a sign of a great company to work for. Some teams even enjoy hanging out with each other after work hours. Sometimes, though, it's inevitable that one of your coworkers is always complaining about something– like complaints about your boss (or corporate policies they find irritating).

Promotion Opportunities:

If you pay your dues, you can get a big promotion as a reward for your hard work, instead of getting sent to an office closet in the basement.


Inclusive Co-Worker Environment:

Working with fellow employees from different backgrounds, cultures, ethnicities, and in some cases, continents, makes coming to work more enjoyable, if not entertaining.

Satisfactory Bonus Structure:

Employers consistently shelling out bonuses to lower-level employees definitely makes working there a 'top company."

Work Perks:

Top Washington companies offer amazing perks that most of us dream of: affordable healthcare, shorter commutes, remote work freedom, sports event tickets, generous parental leave, extra holidays, free company trips, fun training, spacious offices, company cars, and free cell service.

Company Pride:

Employees who work for one of the top 50 companies in Washington are proud to work there. In some cases, they even BRAG about it to their envious friends and family.
