ManTech (NASDAQ:MANT) has placed second on G.I. Jobs’ 2011 Military Friendly Employers list.

The firm is up from a fifth-place finish last year.

According to G.I. Jobs, the list is compiled from a sample of 5, 000 companies whose annual revenues exceeded $500 million. Criteria included the strength of a company’s military recruiting efforts, the percentage of new hires with prior military service, and each company’s policies toward National Guard and Reserve service.

“We are extremely pleased to be recognized as one of the top military-friendly employers, ” CEO George J. Pedersen said. “ManTech highly values the unique technical and leadership skills military veterans bring to the workforce, because they provide a strong foundation for careers that further support our nation’s security and prosperity. The contributions that these men and women have made to our nation’s security give them the knowledge and experience necessary to best support our defense and intelligence customers.”
