You can also take a look at IBM.
I personally appreciate what IBM has added to the Software Engineering community. Look at products from IBM Rational, such as Rational Rose, Clear Quest, Web Sphere. The Eclipse IDE is developed in great part by IBM. If you like their ideology and are very motivated, it might be possible to work for them. I heard that they do a lot of outsourcing (jobs outside US).
However, I would not want to distract you from your initial direction. I’m only giving you another option.
