Domo creates business intelligence software.

250 employees

Domo works hard to take care of its people, providing a comprehensive benefits package, a tablet reimbursement for every employee, gym memberships and a generous vacation policy. But the one thing that most employees mention is the free meals that are catered every day.

“[This] has proven to be a more valuable and appreciated benefit than I would have thought,” explains an employee. “Having to not think every day of what to bring from home or waste the time going out to get something is incredibly nice.” 

Domo also cultivates a work-hard, play-hard culture with events like May the Fourth be With You every May 4 and an annual Halloween video contest. Engineers have a “hack night” every other week, where they are able to work on fun, innovative projects.

“At Domo culture is not a buzzword. It is what we do and say every day. It’s how we work together, communicate, solve problems and deliver unparalleled results,” says Cathy Donahoe, vice president of human resources.

  • Maternity and paternity benefits with $1,000 baby bonus
  • $500 toward each employee’s tablet of choice
  • 401(k) match with no vesting schedule

Qualtrics provides enterprise data collection and analysis.

360 employees

“Qualtrics has an office environment that reflects the company’s philosophy of ‘radical transparency’ with open workspaces and glass conference rooms,” says Liz Tanner, communications director. “The office also has a gym, three fully stocked kitchens, massage chairs, treadmill desks and indoor games [like] foosball and basketball.”

Employees say the company is very family friendly and, in fact, families and dogs are welcome in the offices at just about any time.

Tanner says every employee is given the resources to succeed and grow in their roles, “regardless of whether they're fresh out of college or going on 40 years of experience.”

Employees agree, with one explaining, “It is a fast-paced, goal-centered organization that requires [you] to really stretch in order to meet expectations and succeed. As such you have to be continually growing and developing. With how fast the company is growing, leadership opportunities can be had as soon as you prove your performance.”

  • Fully paid healthcare benefits for employee and family
  • Maternity and paternity benefits
  • Onsite fitness center

Mindshare Technologies

Mindshare Technologies offers “voice of the customer” solutions.

120 employees

Mindshare began as a startup more than a decade ago, but it has not lost its entrepreneurial attitude. “There is a strong ‘small-company’ feel here at Mindshare, even though we continue to grow into a larger organization,” says one company employee. “There is a feeling of entrepreneurship and innovation along with leadership backing to support this concept. People can have a lot of fun while getting our jobs completed...all at the same time.”

To build camaraderie, the company participates in Salt Lake County’s Corporate Games and holds other organized sporting events throughout the year. From lunchtime games of Ultimate Frisbee to frequent parties and celebrations, the crew at Mindshare makes sure to incorporate fun into the workday.

And Mindshare is serious about supporting its employees’ work/life balance, allowing flexible working hours and cloud-based web access for working from home. And professional development is encouraged through an in-house training program.

It's easily accessible and they are truly here to support employees.”
