Texas Monthly magazine teamed up with the Best Companies Group of Harrisburg, Pa., and local partners -Texas Association of Business - to rank the state's best employers. 100 companies were named Best Companies to Work for in Texas for 2014, divided into 26 large companies, 30 medium-sized companies and 44 small companies by the number of people they employ in Texas.
