No. 4: KEYW Corp.( Handout photo / December 1, 2012 )
Headquartered in Hanover, KEYW provides cybersecurity, geospatial and intelligence solutions, primarily to the U.S. government's defense and intelligence communities. Employees say they like the "challenging and exciting work that is making a difference in the security of the U.S." Its name an adaptation of the Key West airport code (EYW), the company takes a laid-back approach to its high-stakes work -- there's casual patio furniture for office meetings and a strict "no tie" policy. The company's 454 employees can take part in activities and events organized by the Employee Morale, Welfare & Recreation Program, including monthly cookouts, season tickets to area sports team games, and the Winter Gala at M&T Bank Stadium.
