Top 10 rankings: No. 1 for retention, No. 2 for training
The unusually long tenures of IT employees at this financial services company in Waltham, Mass., speak to the firm's support for employee work/life balance. A unique perk for people who have worked at Commonwealth Financial for three years is a free stay at one of the company chairman's vacation homes on Cape Cod or in the Dominican Republic, Las Vegas, Florida or Maine.
