The results are back from a survey of workers across New York State, and six CNY companies rank among the state’s top ones for their atmospheres for employees. Categories factoring into the survey included engagement, job satisfaction, benefits, policies and workplace demographics.

The folks at the Best Companies to Work For in NY website grouped the businesses according to company size into three subsections: Small companies (16-99 employees), Medium companies (100-249 employees) and Large companies with at least 250 employees. Two of the companies from Central New York making the list hail from Oneida County and the others are in the Syracuse area.
