Fortune magazine, in conjunction with the Great Places to Work Institute, released its lists of the best small and medium-sized companies to work for and it includes two Austin companies

Cirrus Logic Inc. was ranked the No. 9 best place to work in the medium-size category. Austin-based Cirrus manufactures fabless semiconductors — often used in audio equipment — and is a big supplier of some of the technology behind a lot of Apple products. Fortune's write-up on the company noted Cirrus' weekly happy hours, monthly rock concerts on the company deck, as well as fair pay and performance bonuses

Austin software maker Square Root was ranked the No. 15 best place to work in the small-company category. Fortune's write up of the company noted employee happiness with pay and bonus structure, a generous health care plan and hip workspace. The company's offices are nestled in a historic house off of West Sixth Street
