The end of the year is always witness to a legion of lists — the best this, the worst that, and the five things you have to buy next year or face the ridicule of your peers. HPC mostly doesn’t figure in these lists.
So I took notice of a few of the companies in the HPC space that made the results from Glassdoor.com’s latest poll, as reported in Om Malik’s top tech companies to work for post.
The top ranked company is Juniper Networks, whose gear finds its way into many HPC centers. Storage-vendor EMC is at number 9. Om also lists the worst companies to work for; number three on that list is computer-maker HP (CEO approval rating, 22%). NVIDIA clocks in as the number 5 worst tech company to work for (52% CEO approval rating), and Dell makes it in at the number 10 slot (Dell gets a 28% approval rating).
