Most unusual perk(s)
Here's one you definitely don't hear every day: full health insurance coverage not only for employees, but also for the employees' pets. But it makes sense that Trupanion, a provider of medical insurance for pets, would offer such a benefit to its employees. "It's a great perk, knowing that if any accident or illness occurred, our pets/furry companions are covered," one staffer says. Employees here bring their pets--cats and dogs alike--to work with them every day, where their fun-filled days are spent running around with their other four-legged pals in the enclosed courtyard of the company's Ballard offices, lounging in their owners' cubicles and even napping on top of the desks. And if you asked the dogs, they might tell you about another great perk: a dog walker who comes by to take them out to go exploring.
