June 26, 2015 in News
Nationwide, 461 organizations were nominated for the list.
To qualify for the list, U.S.-based companies had to have at least 30 IT workers, and companies based outside of the U.S. had to have at least 300 workers overall in the U.S and at least 30 IT workers, of whom 50% had to be in the U.S.
The magazine surveyed the nominees to determine various job characteristics, such as:
- Average salary and bonus increases;
- Career development;
- Training opportunities; and
- Turnover rates among IT staff.
The magazine then surveyed a random sample of IT employees at the eligible companies on topics such as:
- Satisfaction with training; and
- Work-life balance.
The magazine’s rankings were grouped into three categories:
- Small firms, or those with fewer than 1,000 U.S. employees;
- Midsize firms, or those with 1,000 to 4,999 U.S. employees; and
