Top 10 pet-friendly companies

The Best Companies Offer Pet Perks

We’re convinced that some companies are run by Cruella De Vil.

OK, maybe that’s a bit of a stretch—Dalmatians everywhere can take comfort in that—but the point is, some employers don’t give your pets a second thought beyond politely smiling at the 20 different pictures of your cat you have sitting on your desk. They don’t offer your pets insurance for those pricey trips to the vet, and they certainly don’t offer your pets invitations into the office.

Fortunately for Fido, that’s not the case for all companies. Some best-in-class employers understand the value pets can bring to the workplace and beyond, such as boosting productivity, lowering blood pressure, and adding a whole lot of cuteness. That’s why some companies offer benefits, such as pet insurance, pet daycare, or even allow you to bring your pet to work.

Recently, Monster partnered with employee-review platform kununu to identify workplace benefits and perks that employees rate as most important to their job satisfaction. Using kununu’s data, identifying the top-ranked companies overall that scored highest for friendliness toward pets and then rounded up the jobs they’re hiring for on Monster.

The winners range from retailers to universities and everything in between. But don’t just take our word that these companies care about your pets. Take it from the people who know best: current and former employees who left reviews on kununu’s site. See if one of the companies below would be a good fit for you—and your pet.
