Minneapolis-based agency Colle & McVoy, previously named one of the Top 100 Workplaces in Minnesota by the Star Tribune, proves it's true what they say about the land of 10,000 lakes -- the people are the friendliest around.
Respondents from the shop's pool of 180 employees overwhelmingly cited personable and passionate co-workers as the lifeblood of its culture. Other great draws: open, egalitarian spaces with few walls (everyone from the CEO to the interns works in equal-sized work spaces), a computer purchase program, a bike discount and purchase program, frequent visits from industry speakers that encourage employees to leverage new technology, flexible work schedules and even a Friday "beer-bike."
Also, "No egos," wrote one employee. "If I need to speak to anyone at any position in the company, I would never hesitate to do so, meaning projects can get done with the most efficiency."
