PHILADELPHIA– June 22, 2010 – The University of Pennsylvania announces that IDG’s Computerworld Magazine has ranked Penn’s Information Systems & Computing organization #5 nationally and #1 in the Mid-Atlantic region in its 2010 Best Places To Work In IT survey.  This is the sixth consecutive year the organization has been ranked #1 in the Mid-Atlantic.  The survey recognizes employers that challenge their IT staff with interesting and exciting projects while providing great benefits and compensation.  Honorees are featured in Computerworld’s June 21 issue along with results from the 17th annual Best Places To Work In IT survey.

A potent combination of management styles, prudent risk taking, and close client collaboration, as well as Penn employee benefits make Information Systems & Computing a stimulating and satisfying environment.  Technology solutions are not only cost effective but deliver value clients appreciate.  Whether it’s an open source solution for Unified Communications or furthering Green IT initiatives or finding new ways to leverage previously made IT investments, Information Systems & Computing people are connected to the strategic direction of the university. 

“We are honored to have received this recognition from Computerworld,” said Robin Beck, Penn’s Vice President of Information Systems & Computing.  “Each day ISC employees collaborate with clients across Penn to create strategic, financial, and operational solutions that contribute to real business results. We in ISC are proud to contribute to Penn’s reputation for innovation and effective cost management.”

To be among the Best Places To Work In IT, it’s not enough just to seek out and hire the most talented IT people, offer them competitive pay, and provide great benefits, according to Computerworld Editor in Chief Scot Finnie.

“The organizations that made this year’s Best Places To Work list sustain a dynamic work environment in which IT professionals keep their hands on the latest technologies and work on projects that are business critical,” said Finnie.
