ViON, which employs 149 workers at its headquarters in Herndon, Va., landed the 39th spot in the midsize employer category, the company said Monday.

“Our employees continually drive innovation for government and commercial organizations, allowing us to fulfill our mission every day," ViON Chairman and CEO Tom Frana said.
