For the third year in a row, USAA has taken the No. 1 spot in Computerworld’s 100 Best Places to Work in IT. And a number of other insurers made the list as well.

For the ranking, Computerworld uses a nomination process in which participants are asked to provide the name and contact information of an appropriate individual at their company who was familiar with or had access to employment statistics, financial data and information about benefits policies and programs for the IT department and the company as a whole. In addition to a number of other measurements, each contact at the 375 nominated companies participates in a survey, containing questions about average salary and bonus increases, percentage of IT staffers promoted, IT staff turnover rates, training and development, as well as the percentage of women and minorities in IT staff and management positions.

Participants were then asked to gather a random sample of employees who would provide feedback on satisfaction with training and development programs, compensation, benefits and work/life balance. In addition, employees were asked to rate employee morale in their IT departments, the importance of various benefits, and their agreement with a variety of statements on subjects ranging from career growth to management's fair and equal treatment of employees.

What resulted is a list of a range of industries, and the insurance industry was represented by 11 companies.

18. Kaiser Permanente
