ComputerWorld: Best Places to Work in IT 2010

ComputerWorld just released its 17th annual report Best Places to Work in IT 2010. The criteria used for the selection include diversity, career development, retention, benefits and training. It does not include cutting edge technology though. I think that is pretty important but hard to measure and compare at the same time.

The top 100 companies come from different industries ranging from technology vendors like SAS, salesforce.com, to the customers. The list does not cover companies from other parts of the world. I am sure many companies from Europe, Canada, etc. would have made the list otherwise.

Lost VMs or Containers? Too Many Consoles? Too Slow GUI? Time to learn how to "Google" and manage your VMware and clouds in a fast and secure HTML5 App.

    Computerworld –> WORLD, list is only US indeed. Maybe someone needs to tell them that a large portion of this world exists outside of the US :-)

    You are absolutely right. There may be similar lists by regional magazines/websites; if not, time for someone to create them. I think many IT professionals would be interested in such lists. :-)

    Funny my former employer is in the middle of this list and they signed with an out sourcer several years ago and only has a small amount of IT people left.

    Interesting. Is that the reason why your former employer get on the list? A small amount of IT people have relatively larger per person budget. :-)
