Berkeley Varitronics Systems, Inc.

The team at Berkeley Varitronics Systems, Inc. (BVS) is comprised of Ph.D.s, technicians and software engineers working side by side. “This culture fosters the highest degree of innovation because it pits various philosophies, backgrounds, educations and disciplines against one another. This competition is always friendly, and generally raises everyone’s game and contributions,” says Scott N. Schober. BVS has no formal management roles. While Schober oversees all jobs, there are no departments or managers, allowing creativity to flourish. To ensure that employees don’t get burnt out, BVS shuts down for a week every summer, and from Christmas to New Years every winter. Additionally, employees can enjoy pool, pingpong and a company-owned Model A Ford pickup truck that is often entered in local car shows.

When you put smart people in a room together with a challenge, they will naturally compete. This benefits everyone in the company.”
