In my perspective, blunt honesty when comunicating anything to the employees, involving the team in decisions, respecting everyone as the professional and adult person they are and avoiding any kind of assumptions in a "because I thought so" fashion throughout the company's lifetime is what makes a place great to work.

I am actually in one of those places (not the whole company agrees with that, and we're working on that), and even when I'm doing extremely boring work, I know WHY I'm doing it, what kind of conversation happened that led to this work, why the short deadline is actually that short, and what comes next. It is motivating in many ways and makes minor issues stay that way, minor.
