No. 4: Praxis Engineering Technologies Inc.

Praxis Engineering is all about finding practical solutions to complex problems. The company -- based in Annapolis Junction with offices in Aberdeen -- provides software and systems engineering primarily to the federal government. Employees at Praxis like what they do so much they're willing to recommend it to a friend. About 60 percent of the Praxis workforce were hired after being encouraged to apply by a current employee. "Praxis really cares about its employees and you aren't just a number to place on a contract," one employee said. "They understand that everyone has a life outside of work and that really motivates us to do a great job and work hard."
