Ad Age has released its second annual list of Best Places to Work and a few PR firms make an appearance. Among them: Airfoil (#8),  GolinHarris (#21), and Cohn & Wolfe (#24).

Some of the perks highlighted at these firms are Summer Fridays, rewards, and awards. A cozy workspace is also a plus. Although they’re not on this list, Lippe Taylor has gotten some media attention recently — in Time Out New York and on New York Live — for the design appeal of their office space.
