BALTIMORE, MD – For the second year in a row, Clear Ridge Defense has been awarded a Top Workplaces 2021 honor by The Baltimore Sun. The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey. The anonymous survey uniquely measures 15 drivers of engaged cultures that are critical to the success of any organization: including alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few.

“It is a great time to be at Clear Ridge,” say Founder and CEO Jeff Bullock. “This ranking has real meaning for us as it is based on survey results directly from CRD team members — not numbers or profits. And, it reflects our efforts to ensure the best cyber talent to our clients. A quality company environment is key to succeeding for our clients, who have no-fail missions.”

Clear Ridge has rapidly increased its team in recent years. The company rose from three full-time employees to 33 full-time team members between 2016 and 2019. Its employee base is comprised of 70% prior military and over 80% with prior military or civil service background. All employees receive generous health care benefits, 401k matching, training allocations, financial advising, cell phone stipends, monthly socials, and employee wellness benefits.
