Global Tax Management Inc.

GTM, based in Radnor, provides corporate tax services, which would seem like the very recipe for frustration.

Part of the chill vibe may come from the company's three-year-old employee stock-ownership plan, which has paid about 7 percent of employees' salaries into their retirement funds each year, on top of their 401(k)s.

Part is intrinsic, says Betsy Dailey, HR manager for the firm, which has 65 employees in the region. "We just have really nice people here."

    "The people I work with make it a good environment to be in."

    "The directors of our company go out of their way to know each team member on a personal level."

    "I have a lot of freedom."

    "The company invests in me with the employee stock-ownership plan and education. It compensates me fairly and gives me the flexibility to have a home/work balance."
