Mandiant®, the leader in security incident response management, today announced that it was recognized as one of The Washingtonian Magazine's 50 Great Places to Work in the Washington, D.C., area. Workplaces selected for the honor were chosen on the basis of such measures as generous pay and benefits, challenging and interesting work, great work/life balance, opportunities to learn and grow, financial stability, commitment to charity and community, and the recognition and respect given to employees. Winners were chosen after a panel of editors reviewed more than 200 companies and some 13,000 employee surveys. The acknowledgement is included in the publication's November, 2013 issue.
