What makes it so great?
Now in its second year under Amazon.com, Zappos maintains its zany culture. New last year: Zfrog awards, which let employees pitch new business ideas, and on-site "laughter yoga" classes.

But things aren't all fun and games: A hacking incident where millions of Zappos customer accounts were exposed to cyberattackers lent a sober note recently. In an employee e-mail, company CEO Tony Hsieh called for "all hands on deck" to get through.
