Best Places to Work - CMD

Portland, OR-based CMD (asi/170680), which operates as a marketing agency and distributor firm, is a definitively collaborative company. With about 150 employees, it houses 11 conference rooms (all named after board games like Battleship, Clue, Pictionary and Cranium). That means there’s one conference room for every 13 employees. Also, staffers work in open areas to foster collaboration, and each employee uses a laptop so they’re able to get up with it at any time. “We do a lot of sharing here,” says Jeff Zabel, managing director of CMD’s promotional marketing division. “We really brainstorm ideas for clients, and work with each other all the time to come up with creative solutions. It’s a true team atmosphere.”
