Seven Virginia companies have made Fortune magazine’s list of the top 100 places to work.
Nonprofit researcher MITRE ranked 42nd on the list. The McLean group was praised for its tuition reimbursement of up to $20,000 a year and bonuses for advanced degrees.
Used-car retailer CarMax ranked 46th on Fortune’s list. It cited on-site nurses at 11 locations and its diverse staff.
Navy Federal Credit Union in Vienna ranked 78th. The magazine noted that it increased its work force by one-third over the past few years.
McLean-based Booz Allen Hamilton placed 81st on the list. The magazine noted the company puts the equivalent of 10 percent of employees’ salaries into their 401(k) regardless of what they contribute. The management-consulting firm also has an on-site gym and daycare facility.
Arlington-based Stanley, a consultant to government agencies, ranked 84th. The magazine noted that employees own 50 percent of the company. The company also covers health care 100 percent.
Fairfax-based SRA International ranked 99th. Last year, the IT consultant surveyed employees about benefits and then changed insurers, added health savings accounts and increased its match to the company’s 401(k).
