Five Missouri firms best for IT workers

Five Missouri-based firms are among Computerworld’s 100 Best Places to Work in IT.

St. Louis-based companies making the list: Scottrade (21st), National Information Solutions Cooperative (22nd), Express Scripts (44th), and Edward Jones (45th). Kansas City’s Cerner Corp. (52nd) also made the list.

Computerworld’s annual Best Places to Work in IT feature ranks the environment for information technology professionals based on a comprehensive questionnaire on categories including benefits, diversity, career development, training and retention. About half the total score was based on employee responses, with the rest based on a survey of the company’s benefits and other programs.
