Why Firewood is One of the 2018 Best Places to Work

We cannot stop smiling.

Why? For the first time in our young company’s history, Firewood has been recognized as one of the 2018 Bay Area Best Places To Work, an awards program presented by the San Francisco Business Times and the Silicon Valley Business Journal. And, as icing on the proverbial cake, we earned a ranking of No. 15 in the best-places-to-work list within the midsize company category, which included companies with 100 to 249 Bay Area employees.

Our hearts swell with pride knowing we ranked high on such values as fun, collaborative culture, solid compensation and benefits offerings and other amenities as well as management practices.

We Firewoodians are sharing why we are a Best Places to Work. Note the smiles. We just. Cannot. Stop.

The People

Firewood is a 'Best Place to Work' because of the great people.

“It’s not lip service when a fellow Firewoodian asks how you are doing or offers a helping hand.”

“I get to spend my days with talented people I respect and like.”

“Makes my heart coming out of my chest due to happiness :)”

“The warmest and most supportive on-boarding experience I’ve ever had in my 20 years of working…”

“Simply put, I like coming to a place where I feel a spirit of inclusion, equality, humbleness and respect…”

The View

When the Giants decide to win another World Series we'll have no problem watching the parade.

“The incredible views! Our office sits on a corner lot overlooking Market Street in downtown SF, and it’s inspiring to watch the constant whir of activity down below.”

“We have a great office space and view of important events and marches.”

“The human approach to our world is not lost due to work. We were given free time to watch the eclipse from our office rooftop.”

Team Events

I've never been in such an inclusive environment..., When you are here, you are with family.

“Our team building events really do help to team build, and are also fun and yummy :)”

“Our happy hours and love for each other on our birthdays.”

“The commitment to building amazing teams through collaboration and events.”

“Team events, like the strategy team at a cocktail mixology class.”

The Extras

We are respected and treated like adults, which is missing in many workplaces. We even get to choose the occasional "work from forest" day.

“Firewood cares and looks after their people. It’s an environment that allows us to be the same person in work and outside of work…”

“I feel empowered to do my best and be my best everyday.”

“The culture at Firewood has a way of breeding positive thinking and attitude…”


“We take time to play while we work!”

“Beyond just a job, Firewood provides me….friendship, support, appreciation, growth, and fun!”

“We have FUN!”

Thank you to our Firewoodians!  This honor is because of you.
