KEYW Recognized as a 2013 Great Place to Work by The Washingtonian

HANOVER, Md., Dec. 2, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The KEYW Holding Corporation (Nasdaq: KEYW) is pleased to announce that The Washingtonian magazine has selected it as one of the 50 Great Places to Work in the greater Washington, DC area. KEYW was selected after a panel of editors reviewed more than 200 companies and an estimated 13,000 employee surveys.

"I continue to be pleased and humbled by such recognition and thank our employees and leadership for their contributions to the culture we have built at KEYW," commented Len Moodispaw, CEO and President of KEYW Corporation. "Work-life balance is a core value for us at KEYW. We strive to offset the serious work we do for our customers with a work environment that promotes employee morale, welfare and recreation programs. We take great pride in offering our employees attractive benefits and a workplace that reinforces this core value."

The Washingtonian made its selections based on 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.

The Washingtonian published the complete list of 50 Great Places to Work in its December 2013 issue.
