BRYAN/COLLEGE STATION, Tex. (KBTX) - The list of Best Companies to Work for in Texas was recently released, and four companies in the Bryan/College Station area were recognized.

University Title Company came in at number three on the list for the "Small Employer" category. K2Share, LLC took 19th place. Frogslayer and CAPSHER Technology, Inc. took places 25 and 29.

Maurie Shipp works at University Title and said she looks forward to going to work every day.

"This is a place that really invests in what you are, and what you can give to your company. It just feels good," said Shipp. "We're pumped. That's a huge honor. It's been a couple years that we've been on it consecutively, but this is number 3. It's pretty high up there."

Best Companies assesses businesses through a questionnaire and employee engagement and satisfaction survey to decide the rankings.

"Everyone is treated very fairly. I've been here for six months, or if you've been here 36 years, we're all valued on the exact same level. It feels good to be appreciated," said Shipp.

Ross Morel, CEO and President of Frogslayer, a custom software company, was also excited to be honored for the second time.

"I don't think it's any coincidence that companies on that list are a lot of the fastest growing companies in Texas as well. I think people that really focus on their culture, their people and their core values and what their purpose is, I think you do find success. People enjoy working for them and working with them," said Morel.

The goal for these companies is to keep up the good work and aim for the top.
