Globetrotting

San Francisco-based Airbnb, which lists apartment rentals across the globe, is well known for being a dog-friendly workplace. It's also embracing its role as a travel company, providing each new hire with a $2,000 stipend to go somewhere exotic and check out the local digs. Just working out of the SF HQ can feel like a trip: Conference rooms are decorated to look like rental listings from far-flung locales.
