Large companies ranked

All of the participating companies were placed into one of three size bands, based on the number of employees in Massachusetts to account for the "small company effect" found in such surveys, and because the story to be told is what the worker experience is in the state. Small workplaces were defined as those with 100 to 249 employees; midsize workplaces were defined as those with 250 to 999 employees; and large workplaces were companies with 1,000 or more workers.
