For a lot of attorneys, working in-house is an accomplishment in and of itself. But even with highly desired jobs, some places are better than others. What should be an attorneys dream in -house position?

Here's three great places that should count as many lawyer's fantasy employers. Lawyers interested in unique work environments, where employees are both challenged and rewarded, and where the enterprise is at the top of its field, should check out:

1. Google

Listen, we all know that soon or later most of us will be enslaved by corporate robots set on controlling every aspect of our life. So why not get in on the ground floor? Google, the search and information monolith, isn't just best primed to lead the drone revolution, it's going to have happy employees on the front lines.

Google is consistently rated one of the best places to work in America. There's the well documented perks, from nap pods, to in-house masseuses, to a beloved bus program. There's also the fact that employees across the board report challenging work, rewarding assignments and high levels of satisfaction. Anyone with the opportunity to work in house at Google is guaranteed to have a front seat to some of the most interesting legal developments of the coming years, whether it's information privacy, driverless cars or employment law in the tech age.

2. NASA

Rated the best large government agency to work for by the Partnership for Public Service, the space nerds at NASA top the charts for almost every category evaluated. Great teamwork and innovation? Check. Support for diversity and performance-based rewards? Top of the charts. Okay, it's not a company per se, but it does employ attorneys - space attorneys!

3. REI

If Google's too tech and NASA too head-in-the-sky, consider REI. The outdoor and sports equipment retailer is rated one of the best companies to work by Fortune as well as the top retail employer in the country. Attorneys at REI get to deal with typical corporate and retail challenges, while they enjoy the benefits of an outdoor-focused organization, such as the semi-annual "Yay Day," in which employees are given a day off to, literally, "go outside and play."
