Technology is always evolving, so keeping skills and knowledge up-to-date is essential for IT professionals. Many employers today offer at least partial reimbursement for professional development and educational opportunities for their workers. Mountain View, Calif.-based soft­ware company Intuit is particularly generous in this regard: It gives its employees up to $5,000 per year for continuing education.
