Computerworld magazine has named MGM MIRAGE to its list of 100 Best Places to Work In IT, recognizing companies that excel at keeping their information technology workers well-compensated, well-trained and satisfied on the job.

"We have a tremendously talented team backed by business partners who embrace and support technology," said Tom Peck, senior vice president and chief information officer of MGM MIRAGE. "We get to see the results of our efforts through the 24/7 interaction with our guests.

MGM MIRAGE offers both online and classroom training for its IT employees, and is a sponsor of Women In Information Technology (WITI) International.

To compile the list, Computerworld readers, PR professionals and other interested parties nominated companies they consider great employers for IT workers. Computerworld asked nominees with more than 50 IT employees, more than 300 total employees and annual revenue exceeding $100 million to participate in a survey. In addition, Computerworld required the IT employees of these companies to complete a separate employee survey.

The company survey asked about the companies' benefits, training and development, average salary increases, percent of staff promoted, turnover rates and the percentage of women and minority staff in IT management. In addition, Computerworld collected information on the companies' hot projects, mentoring programs and a variety of benefits ranging from elder care and childcare to flextime.

The employee survey collected data on employee satisfaction with management, benefits, workplace culture, compensation and job duties.

Computerworld awarded points to each company based on the survey responses, and companies awarded the most points were named to the list.
