At Dynamic Network Services, people "work hard and play hard," says the company's CEO, Jeremy Hitchcock. Dyn's culture is built around a strong work-life balance—though employees are expected to work hard, the company gives back with a number of events and activities, including trips (last month they went to a planetarium), summer barbeques, and comedy clubs. Hitchcock says only three people have voluntary left the company since it was founded, and believes the best work environments are those that let employees explore their own potential. "I'm not a big fan of micromanaging," he says. "Our people are self-starters."
