Best places to work

Perhaps the perma-vagabonding life isn’t quite within reach and you need a job that will not only value your love for travel, but also will pay you enough so you can squirrel away cash for that travel. How do you know which companies support a healthy work-life balance?

Outside magazine’s May issue helps you weed through the companies who just talk a good game and identifies the 50 best places to work, sorted by location, average salary and more. Not only that, but an article about winning company philosophies on work-life balance shows that more organizations are taking similar paths. To round out the feature, company leaders share their thoughts about what makes their business stand out from the rest.

If working for yourself isn’t in the cards, and those lottery tickets haven’t yet paid off—why not work for a company that cares about the things you care about?
