Grant Thornton
Why you want to work there

Rather than enforce a strict office schedule without regard to employees' personal needs, this Chicago-based accounting firm strives to help its staffers maintain work/life balance by giving them the option of choosing alternative working arrangements such as telecommuting and working flexible hours. Grant Thornton offers healthcare coverage reimbursements and has a tool called Planwise that helps employees select the best health insurance plans for their personal and financial needs; employees who use the tool receive a monthly wellness credit that is used to offset the cost of health insurance premiums.
