"We have a simple formula - create a dynamic workplace where team members can grow in their careers," said Mary McDuffie, president/CEO of Navy Federal. "We know when you treat team members right, they provide the exceptional service our members have grown to expect from Navy Federal.”

In awarding Navy Federal, FORTUNE noted that 95 percent of Navy Federal employees are proud to tell others where they work and feel good about the ways the organization contributes to the community. In addition, 96 percent of employees say they were made to feel welcome when they joined the team and consider the employee benefits offered to be special and unique.
