I'm hoping to move up to MT soon, well as soon as I can find gainful employment. That is what leads me here.

I'm trying to find out if there are any larger companies up there. I'm a professional computer nerd and it's usually more difficult to find stable jobs with small companies. Larger companies are going to typically provide a little more stability.

Are there any big companies in, or near Bozeman, Butte, Missoula, or Kalispell?

Thanks for any help!

Ft Harrison (3 miles West of Helena) is the VA hospital for Montana. You might consider and IT position. Ft Harrison is the only VA hospital in the state, but it has clinics of varying degress in the following town/cities.

Anaconda
Great Falls
Billings
Havre
Bozeman
Kalispell
Cut Bank
Lewistown
Glasgow
Miles City
Glendive
Missoula

They have an extensive IT department that not only works on the Network between sites, but medical records, machine and equipment data connections, etc.

It would be a government position and you'd have a GS rating. Steady, solid, with outstanding benifits.

Just a thought.

A couple hundred employees maybe? I suppose it is a subjective term.

I'm mostly looking for a somewhere that would have a larger IT department.

The universities in Bozeman and Missoula may be a good bet, although I think they pay pretty low. Many of the other towns have smaller colleges as well. I know in Missoula there is Washington Corp and they have a few hundred employees. There are probably several others as well in other towns. Hospitals and multi office clinics. Glacier Park and the major ski resorts (Big Mtn and Big Sky), maybe.

I would also look at CPA firms and possibly law firms, they're always looking for tech geeks so they can offer "full service" consulting.

Helena would be the place for gov't jobs, but you might be able to find some county positions as well.

Billings probably has some larger companies in the oil business.

I know that's pretty vague, I'll try to add more detail when I have time.
