WHY WE THINK WE'RE A GREAT PLACE TO WORK

For nearly 20 years our Geeks have enjoyed a laid back, accepting, encouraging, fun and innovative workplace and we're as committed as ever to keeping it that way, even as we continue to grow. Above all else, we believe our team members are people first, employees second, and that informs the decisions we make as a company. We provide opportunities for employment and advancement to people who are career oriented and technology obsessed but want to work and live outside of a major metropolitan area. Located just an hour outside of NYC, you get the best of both worlds at GeekHive. As developers, we partner with Fortune 500 companies and the top creative agencies in the world to bring their ideas to life. If they can dream it, our Geeks can build it - and still make it home in time for dinner. Our motto is, treat people like they matter - because they do.

WHY WE THINK WE'RE A GREAT PLACE TO WORK

S-One has pursued the goal of creating an environment that not only appeals to all generations in the work force, but also offers long-term opportunities to grow. As a corporation, S-One offers entry-level jobs in sales, marketing, information technology and more. S-One's first priority is to promote from within whenever possible, allowing our current employees the chance to flourish and challenge themselves as they build real careers. Over the 20-plus years of the company's existence, S-One has learned to embrace its casual, fun atmosphere to help employees not only grow closer in their individual teams, but as an extension of their family. Employees are encouraged to dress comfortably because if they're comfortable in their attire, they're free to focus on the job at hand. While the leadership team often knows their teams are working hard to advance the company, they'll often ask, "Are you having fun?" It's a great check-in and reminder for individual employees to keep things in perspective. S-One's leadership team will work hard to fit the job to the individual, rather than the other way around. It's not uncommon for someone who is tasked daily with sales calls to reach out to marketing with a campaign idea.

WHY WE THINK WE'RE A GREAT PLACE TO WORK

Avalon -- one of Washington, DC's most well-regarded, cutting-edge, full-service fundraising consulting agencies -- is a terrific place to work. We have created a corporate culture unlike any other agency. We're strategic, analytical, creative, innovative, collaborative and most of all, passionate about our work. Avalon has developed detailed core values that guide our office culture. Avalon prioritizes creating a work environment where people feel challenged, inspired and motivated by the good work they're able to achieve on behalf of influential non-profits. One of the ways we make them feel secure in our business is by staffing conservatively so that if and when we lose a client -- which all consultants occasionally do -- our staff does not have to immediately worry about layoffs. In Avalon's 20-year history, we've never had to lay off an employee due to losing a client. We work hard, but we also strive for a healthy work/home balance for everyone at Avalon -- collaborating with each staff member to design reasonable expectations and responsibilities, with a work plan for getting them done. Our staff retention is incredibly strong, with nearly 20% of staff with 10+ years at the company. We are woman-owned, family-friendly and a tremendously fun company as well!

WHY WE THINK WE'RE A GREAT PLACE TO WORK

We have purposely curated a people centric organization that encourages growth, discomfort, celebration, having-of-backs, and allowing people to be themselves and help shape the future of our company. We allow them to integrate with the brands they support and provide the opportunity to creatively collaborate on some North America's leading meeting and events. Because of this creativity, the nature of events (fast paced) and working alongside dynamic brands like Saucony, Keds, Bauer Hockey and more - team members enjoy the opportunity to express themselves professionally.
