#8 - Best Small Workplaces

INDUSTRY: Professional Services, Staffing and Recruitment
LOCATION: Virginia

Snagajob’s employees, known as “Snaggers,” are serious about the company’s mission to help hourly workers find the right positions to “maximize their potential and live more fulfilling lives.” They often share grateful stories from the people they’ve helped secure jobs, and the employee handbook reminds Snaggers to treat hourly employees well wherever they go, including tipping generously. Snagajob’s own workplace, meanwhile, sounds like a playground for adults, with ping pong and foosball tables, an old-fashioned popcorn machine, refrigerator keg, on-site gym, even a slide between floors. The company treats employees generously with quarterly bonuses, a week’s worth of chef-prepared meals for new parents, and an all-expenses paid trip to the Bahamas with a guest on their 10th anniversary. Working at Snagajob also provides the unusual opportunity to have a robot for a boss – the Chief Technology Officer works out of Boston, so the company purchased a remote telepresence robot that he controls from his home – with his face appearing on the head-shaped monitor, he rolls in and out of meeting rooms interacting with Snaggers in much the same way he would if he were there in the flesh.
