This Dallas-based provider of strategic services and custom application development has a stated goal of helping all employees grow to their fullest potential. Toward that end, the company has a professional development tool called the Expectations Framework, which guides people along their career paths, with the goal of reaching the executive ranks. Perks include an employee stock-ownership plan (ESOP), a 401(k) match, paid family leave, paid sabbaticals and 100% employer-paid healthcare. Under a cohort model for compensation, all employees at a certain level are paid the same amount in order to encourage people to focus on the success of the team rather than individual success.
