Penn leads area organizations on Computerworld's "100 Best Places To Work In IT"

Computerworld has named its 2010 100 Best Places To Work In IT, and as usual the University of Pennshylvania is ranked right near the top, at #5.

Others are Campbell Soup (16), The Vanguard Group (35), Lehigh
Valley Health Network
(36), Temple University (53), and American Water of Vorhees (94).

Penn was recognized for, among other things, its new open-source/open-standard voice-over-IP system to replace the existing one and deliver unified communications, and a multiyear initiative to replace Penn's printed directory with an online-only version.

Campbell's was lauded for its heath and wellness programs, Vanguard for its in-house training, Lehigh Valley Health for a strong community service culture, Temple for its huge computer lab and its employee tuition breaks, and American Water for its embrace of new technologies.

Among these six area organizations Vanguard is by far the largest IT employer, having over 2400 employees classified as such.
