Rockville; 26 employees
Raffa is in the business of helping companies choose the best insurance packages for employees, so it knows a thing or two about benefits. Workers have flexible schedules (with more than half telecommuting at least once a week), say they’re paid well, and start with as many as 25 vacation days. People are so happy that in the company’s 15-year history, no one has voluntarily left.
Perk: At this friendly office, everyone makes sure to start each e-mail request with “please” and end with “thank you.”
