J.D. Power is in Westlake although I think it may be on the L.A. side
VW of America has their emissions lab and technical center in Westlake, but also probably l.a. side. My friend works there and while I haven't been in the main building, I've been able to see some cool stuff. He gets to ride around in the Bugatti's when they come in.
Line 6 guitar effects company has an office in Simi but their main HQ is in Calabasas so they only half count
BMW has an emissions lab in Oxnard. I used to see the camouflaged vehicles driving Potrero on my way home from work when I was in Camarillo.
Borla Exhaust is in Oxnard

This is fun. That's all I remember for now.

LadyKLO, thanks for bringing up many of the big time employers that are in the area. The reason I am here in this place is because of the Navy. My dad was the 26th enlisted Man to be part of NEMESIS way back in the 1960's. He was stationed in San Diego on a Destroyer and the Navy sent him to Port Hueneme to help start NEMESIS, a base within the base so to speak.

Community Memorial Health System where I work has just over 2,000 employees working at Community Memorial Hospital, Ojai Valley Community Hospital, 9 Centers For Family Health centers within the western side of the county, 2 Medical clinics, and a community Pharmacy in Fillmore. On top of that CMHS owns 51% of Grossmans Immaging Centers in Oxnard and Ventura.

Gills Onions is another place that hires quite a few people. They had a write up in the paper about them. The company uses waste from the onions to produce electricity to run the plant.
