Best Boss 

Dan Gilbert, Cleveland Cavaliers and Quicken Loans

Your boss sucks. That's all there is to it. After buying the Cavaliers and opening Quicken Loans' Internet Home Lending Center in downtown Cleveland, Dan Gilbert has put other bosses in town to shame. For Quicken, he provides vacation raffles, bonus incentives, live music at meetings, free popcorn and beverages in the employee lounge, concert-ticket giveaways, and extravagant annual parties -- including one headlined by the Black Eyed Peas. No wonder Quicken's been named one of the "Top 100 Companies to Work for in America" by Fortune four years running. For the Cavs? He pumped $27 million in renovations into the arena -- including luxurious locker rooms replete with flat screens -- and just completed a $25 million state-of-the-art training center in Independence. How do dress-down Fridays sound now?
