Top 10 rankings: No. 7 for retention
This Dallas-based provider of strategic services and custom application development has a stated goal of helping every employee grow into a potential leader. Toward that end, the company has set up what it calls an Expectations Framework to guide employees along their career paths. Perks include an employee stock-ownership plan (ESOP), a 401(k) match, paid sabbaticals and 100% employer-paid healthcare. Under a cohort model for compensation, all employees at a certain level are paid the same amount, with the goal of encouraging technologists to focus on the success of the team rather than individual success.
