Location: Chicago, Illinois
Number of Employees: 75 Frogs (full-time employees) and approximately 150 Tadpoles (interns)
Digs: Inside the office is a tree house complete with a slide and beanbag chairs for meetings. The tadpoles sit in “ponds” (clusters of desks that face each other), and several meeting rooms are lit up with mason jar light fixtures that reflect the brand’s outdoor camping theme.
Culture: It’s not uncommon to see employees in exercise gear inside the office, nor is it surprising to see them zipping around on skateboards or scooters. Though the staff works hard, every Monday they get together for family lunch in the 300-seat mess hall and s'mores stations dot the office. To further blow off steam, employees scale the indoor rock climbing wall or play a game of foosball.
Sweet Parks: Every five years Red Froggers may take a fully paid four-week sabbatical to Africa, Asia, Europe, or South America with any one person of their choice. Frogs also receive unlimited vacation days and are allowed to work from home one day per week.
Now Hiring: Full-time employees are only hired from within, so everyone is required to participate in the internship program in order to be considered for a position
