Favorite Seattle-area company
"What do you get when you cross a good time with friends and a full-time strategic career?" asks one employee of our "Favorite Seattle-area small company" winner -- "Projectline!" That sentiment was echoed by many of the contented staff at Projectline, a marketing consulting firm with a portfolio of high-tech clients like Microsoft, Dow and Intel. Extracurricular activities like kickball games and after-work book clubs keep the good times rolling (even when they're reading marketing books). Lots of employees here feel like they're surrounded by friends, telling us that the biggest boost they get is from being in the company of smart, enthusiastic and caring people who feel like they're always learning new things and looking toward the future. And it wouldn't be a Seattle winner if they didn't have progressive extras like organic fruit delivered to their Sodo office from Pike Place Market, a green commuting program and monthly opportunities to volunteer and give back.
