Why It's a Great Employer

This self-described "human-centered design consultancy and technology research lab" was founded by three Carnegie Mellon University colleagues (a computer scientist, a cognitive psychologist, and an industrial designer). Their company culture is engineered to promote transparency: during the recession, they held bi-weekly meetings to keep people in the loop and, thanks to austerity measures, were profitable for all four quarters in 2009. A fifth of profits are shared with employees on a quarterly basis.
