Freedom to be who you are and fulfilling work tend to earn companies on the top lists of best places to work, according to the Harvard Business Review.
The following story was provided by AOLJobs.com By Claire Gordon What is the perfect place to work? An office where every employee gets an annual 10 percent raise? And nobody ever gets fired?
