Two businesses in San Antonio are clocking in among the country’s best employers for millennials, according to a new report.

The Best Workplaces for Millennials list is published annually by Fortune magazine and compiled by Great Place to Work, a company that focuses on improving workplace culture. 

For the two San Antonio employers noted, NuStar Energy ranks highest among small, midsized, and large employers. It appears at No. 91 on the list for large employers. NuStar Energy is one of the largest independent liquids terminal and pipeline operators in the nation.
