LoadSpring Solutions enables project managers to securely access specialized project management software.

LoadSpring wants its employees to expand their horizons by interacting with other cultures, so it gives employees $5,000 and a bonus week of vacation for traveling abroad. Perhaps counterintuitively, the company also encourages employees to consider their environmental footprint and gives them cash and time-off bonuses for making improvements on that front. The company also covers three-quarters of health insurance costs for employees and their families.
