Oceanport business named one of the 'best companies for job offers’ by Forbes.com
CommVault will end its current fiscal year with 130 hires.
CommVault in Oceanport, N.J. has been chosen by Forbes as one of the sixteen best companies “with a history of steadily rising payrolls and the prospect of strong top-line growth over the next four years.”
To compile the list, Forbes reporter William Baldwin (not to be confused with the star of Backdraft) worked with Scott DeCarlo of the publication’s Statistics Department to screen publicly traded companies for the following attributes:
- “a 5% or better annual growth rate in the employee count over the past five years, with no year-to-year dips bigger than 10%. We considered only companies with at least 1,000 employees.
- a consensus Wall Street forecast for 5% or better top-line growth over the next three to five years.
- a top-quartile rating from Audit Integrity, which scorecards companies on such measures as transparency, corporate governance and absence of insider trading. The point here: You should avoid companies that are pushing the envelope with their accounting, attracting shareholder lawsuits or engaging in a flurry of acquisitions and divestitures. These are risky places to work.”
“Jobs are disappearing in some parts of the computer business,” writes Baldwin. “But they are growing in data management. Take a look at the mess of files you have on your home laptop and think about what goes on in corporate info departments. Now you know why CommVault is growing. This Oceanport, N.J. company creates software for archiving and backing up corporate data.”
“CommVault vice president William Beattie Jr. says the company will end its current fiscal year with 130 hires, a lot for a firm that now numbers 1,240. He wants to hear from you if you are a Unix or Windows developer with C or C++ experience. There are also openings for programmers good at Java-based user interfaces.”
Some of the other companies selected for the list include Costco Wholesale, Royal Caribbean, medevac specialist Air Methods and contract manufacturer Labarge. According to Baldwin, what they all have in common is “a career opportunity where promotions are more likely than pink slips.”
