Why you want to work there

IT employees at ServerCentral, a managed data center services provider in Chicago, value the opportunity to work with cutting-edge technologies of their own choosing to solve complex problems. Offsetting the seriousness of that mission is a startup-like atmosphere: The office has giant bean bags for napping, employees take breaks by spontaneously challenging one another to compete in the word-guessing game Catch Phrase, and the company treats employees to catered birthday lunches and maintains a casual Friday dress code all week long. Benefits include a flexible work-from-home policy, a generous amount of paid time off, unlimited days of training, and fully paid health insurance coverage.
