"Being recognized by Computerworld as a Best Place to Work in IT for the second year in a row is wonderful acknowledgment that our efforts to attract and retain top IT talent are working. We are gratified to be considered among the best in providing our IT associates ongoing learning and development opportunities to grow their careers in a fun and rewarding environment," said Charlie Bonomo, Senior Vice President & Chief Information Officer for MSC.

"Over the past couple of years, we've seen an already tight market for tech talent get even tighter," said Computerworld Executive Editor Ken Mingis. "Computerworld's 2018 Best Places to Work in IT list illustrates that the companies that offer the best working environments aren't satisfied with rolling out one or two initiatives. They seek an edge in the talent marketplace through a combination of good salaries, great benefits, ready access to training, and the deployment of cutting-edge technologies. They recognize that the top tech talent can easily move to the organization that respects them best, and they are determined to be that organization."
