MITRE was named one of Foundry’s Computerworld 2024 Best Places to Work in IT for the sixth year in a row—and 15th time since 2005. MITRE ranks 40th among large companies.
“As MITRE continues to focus on increasing impact for our sponsors, our Enterprise Computing, Information, and Security (ECIS) team has been committed to moving faster; being bolder; acting with agility, courage, and resilience; and being an engaged partner,” says Deborah Youmans, MITRE vice president and chief information officer.
“The ECIS team has consistently leaned forward to implement new technology, including generative artificial intelligence (AI) tools, that better enable our staff to deliver innovative solutions to our sponsors,” she says. “We’re proud to support them with an environment and work experience that Computerworld has once again honored as one of the best in class.”
The Best Places to Work in IT list is an annual ranking of the top work environments for technology professionals by Computerworld. The list is compiled based on a comprehensive questionnaire regarding company offerings in categories such as benefits, career development, diversity, equity, and inclusion, future of work, training and retention. In addition, the rankings are reviewed and vetted by a panel of industry experts.
“Technology is playing an increasingly important role in modern business. IT professionals continue to benefit from this trend, as this year’s winning organizations increase staffing and offer a variety of pathways to upskill, reskill, and diversify their teams,” says Rob O’Regan, global director, content strategy, Foundry. “These companies provide a model for IT and HR leaders who are looking for new ways to attract, engage, and retain talent in an increasingly competitive IT environment.”
