Location: Nashville, Tennessee
Number of employees: 26
 A suite on an eight-story office building near Music Row and downtown Nashville. In the building there is a café, an art gallery, and a personal-training studio/gym. In the Paradigm suite there is a large conference room decorated by framed portraits of Patsy Cline and Bill Monroe, done by local artist Jim Sheridan.
Culture: It’s a typical office, meaning plenty of time in front of the computer, but it’s also a small office with many long-term employees, meaning familial, often jovial working relationships. Long hours serving clients are offset by extremely flexible hours during the slower times of the month; it’s not uncommon for employees to schedule haircuts, doctors appointments, or workout in the onsite gym during business hours.
Sweet Perk: Each year the company takes an annual trip to help with a local community project and have a little bit of fun. This past April it was Key West, with a catamaran ride and snorkeling after working on a landscaping project at a women’s shelter.
