Direct Capital Ranked Among Top Ten Best Places to Work in America

Direct Capital is currently ranked one of the 10 best places to work in U.S. by, a leading job-search site.

The company is ranked eighth on Indeed’s list of 500 U.S. employers and is the top-ranked financial services firm overall. Direct Capital is celebrating its 20th anniversary as a small business lender and employs more than 220 employees between its Portsmouth, N.H. headquarters and satellite offices across the country.

Reviewers credited the company for its family-oriented culture, advancement opportunities, good benefits, fun work environment, compensation, 401k match, free gym, and great energy - among other things.

“We’ve spent a great deal of time focusing on our culture over the last several years,” said Stephen Lankler, Senior Vice President of Direct Capital. “But when you put aside the barbecues, company events, and other benefits, what people really thrive on is the energy and commitment of everyone around them. We have an amazing group of people working here with extraordinary passion and that lifts everyone up.”

Lankler said in addition to providing solid overall benefits, the company has created opportunities for its team to enjoy some unique benefits. “Last year, we kicked off an effort that empowers sales representatives to leave early on Fridays when they hit their goals for the week,” he said. “That has been a win-win. They achieve what they need to and, in return, they earn more time to enjoy the weekend.”

Indeed is one of America's leading job-search sites, with millions of monthly users. Its “Best Places to Work” rankings are based on an average of employee reviews for each company listed on the site.

Established in 1993, Direct Capital provides financing for small- to mid-ticket equipment, franchise remodels and technology purchases, working capital, and business loans. The company is headquartered in Portsmouth, N.H. and operates offices in New York, California, and Georgia.
