I would say I like aspects of both so any company that can blend the best of both has my vote. What I mean by that:

  1. ability to shift technology and use modern tools -- meaning that you're not stuck writing 1997 Java
  2. flexible schedule + remote work
  3. if working at an office, an office with cublicles or individual offices (please no open floorplans!)
  4. health, 401K, and other benefits
  5. competitive salary
  6. exciting product or at least a product I'd be excited to work on
  7. well-funded or with a good profitable business model

Do companies like that exist? Yes, absolutely. I've worked at several companies that offered benefits, good salary, great focus on technology, and so on.
