Maroon had the highest score of any small agency entered for Best Places to Work, with strong marks in all five categories: employee advancement and improvement, work-life balance, general considerations, strong morale, and diversity and inclusion.
One judge noted the way in which the staff has bonded and their work-life balance, saying: “Maroon employees delight in their feeling of camaraderie but appear to be especially happy with the work-life balance they are afforded, with a generous number of work-from-home days each month.”
Maroon staffers get one work from home day a week, paid vacation for the winter holidays, summer Fridays where the office closes at 1 p.m., and 19 additional days of paid time off.
Perks include a gym, shared bikes, food trucks, yoga, happy hour, and a generous expense account that pays for all the tools and systems staffers need to do their jobs effectively. Maroon has even had meditation experts in the office and massage therapists.
A judge noted its new office space is a “small collaborative environment [that’s] always open to employees’ ideas and input.” Staffers highlighted their company’s open-door policy, making it easy to obtain counsel from senior leaders. “Teamwork makes the dream work,” an employee said. “We all work well together, collaborate, and depend on each other. Our younger staffers are friends outside of work.”
