  • FBI (#11)
  • National Security Agency (#12)
  • NASA (#13)
  • CIA (#15)
  • Defense Department (#20)
  • State Department (#22)
  • Energy Department (#30)
  • Air Force (#31)
  • Navy (#34)
  • Environmental Protection Agency (#49)
  • Treasury Department (#54)
  • Army (#60)
  • Peace Corps (#69)
  • Nuclear Regulatory Commission (#91)
  • National Institutes of Health (#95)
  • Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (#97)

Agencies also fared well in other categories: NASA was No. 1 among engineering employers, while NIH topped the natural science list.
