Notable Father-Friendly Policies And Practices
- Zappos employs a full-time, certified life coach who’s available for one-on-one consultations about establishing and meeting career or personal goals. Not that you need one (but it’s nice to know it’s there).
- The company’s quirky culture has a money-back guarantee; if you go to work at Zappos and find yourself annoyed with the liberal use of the letter “Z” and the occasional use of camels to promote Wednesdays, you’ll receive one month of compensation when you quit. (It claims less than 2 percent of employees take the company up on the offer.)
