With a generous bonus pool, an annual check-in for each employee with HR, and cash incentives for exercising, Walker & Dunlop is a real standout in the commercial real estate finance industry. Each month, W&D’s executives take 6 to 8 employees out to lunch to provide them with a comfortable setting to engage with managers. The opportunity for job sharing for new parents, 48 hours PTO per year to volunteer, and support to relocate to any of W&D’s office locations helps employees feel like "owners." When the company went public in 2010, all employees received stock. In 2012, staffers are still celebrating the fact that W&D has kept that small company feel.

Employees celebrate the year's accomplishments at the 2011 Holiday Party.
