11 DC-area companies on Computerworld’s Best Places to Work in IT

WASHINGTON — Computerword’s 2018 list of 100 Best Places to Work in IT includes 11 companies based in the Washington region.

This is the 25th year for Computerworld’s list, and it is based on average salary and bonus increases, percentage of IT staffers promoted, IT staff turnover rates, training and development and the percentage of women and minorities in IT staff and management positions.

It is also based on employer’s retention programs, methods of rewarding outstanding performances, and benefits ranging from elder care and child care to flextime and reimbursement for college tuition and the costs of earning technology certifications.

Some IT staffers were randomly selected for an employee satisfaction survey. Eight-year-old Woodbridge, Virginia-based government IT contractor Sev1Tech Inc. made the top 100, and also ranked No. 1 for retention and No. 4 for career development. Sev1Tech also ranked No. 3 among small organizations with 1,000 or fewer U.S. employees.

The top three among large organizations with 5,000 or more U.S. employees are Quicken Loans, Owens Corning and VMWare.

The top three at midsized organizations are Ultimate Software, Enova International and Plante Moran.

And the top three among small organizations are Cloud for Good, Axxess and Sev1Tech.
