This accolade highlights Design Pickle’s exceptional work environment and commitment to employee satisfaction, positioning it as an employer of choice for potential job candidates looking for a highly recognized, innovative, and inclusive workplace.

In a comprehensive survey of hundreds of companies, Design Pickle emerged as one of the top 50 most outstanding workplaces. A staggering 61,705 employees across Arizona participated in the survey, reflecting the importance and impact of the award.

“We are excited to be recognized as a top workplace, which reaffirms our commitment to creating an environment where our talented team can thrive,” said Russ Perry, Founder, and CEO of Design Pickle. “This recognition serves as a testament to the resilience and adaptability of our team and we have never been more dedicated to enriching our company culture and ensuring our employees are supported as we grow and evolve.”

The factors that distinguished Design Pickle include its unique company culture, competitive compensation, comprehensive benefits package, flexible work-life balance, professional development opportunities, and commitment to DEIB (diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging).

Competitive Compensation, Benefits, and Personal Development Opportunities

Design Pickle ensures that its employees receive competitive pay, including annual performance-based raises that account for cost of living adjustments and performance recognition. The company provides a generous benefits package encompassing health, dental, vision, life, and disability insurance.
