Computerworld ranks companies based on responses to a 100-question survey that includes information about average salary and bonus increases, percentage of IT staff promoted, IT staff turnover rates, training and development, and percentage of women and minorities in IT staff and management positions. Other factors include employee satisfaction with salaries and bonuses, benefits, and work/life balance issues.

Companies that qualified for the competition had 2002 revenue of at least $250 million and employed at least 100 people.
