The annual Computer World survey of best places to work in IT has just been released. You may need to register to view the sorted listing of organizations, but topping the list is Quicken Loans Inc. based in Livonia, Michigan. One trend that I believe will gradually start to increase is the appearance of educational institutions on this list. Temple University, my employer, is one of the three that has made this years Top 100 Places to Work in IT. This is in addition to a ranking earlier last year as one of America’s Most Connected Campus. While rankings are subject to controversy, they do so much more to improve morale and will always continue to be a coveted prize by the marketing department.
