*** Real people

I may have confused people with this request. I am looking for examples of companies with career pages and hiring websites that show actual employees in their workplace in ways that express what the company is all about through its employees. I am also looking for company websites that utilize stock photos of people who clearly don't work for the company and therefore do not best convey an image of what that company is all about..

Send examples to Ned Lundquist at lundquist989@cs.com.
