Eighteen companies with Long Island ties were named among the best places to work in New York State, according to a recent poll by the New York State Society for Human Resources Management.

Bohler Engineering in Hauppauge ranked No. 1 in the large employer category rating companies with 250 or more employees. The highest-ranking local business in the small employer category, defined as having between 15 and 249 employees, was Holbrook-based American Portfolios, a financial consulting firm.

The survey, which is in its 10th year, evaluates and ranks the best places of employment through a state-wide survey designed to identify and honor the best places to work in New York, whose practices benefit the State’s businesses, economy and workforce.

Local companies in the top 10 were Bethpage Federal Credit Union coming in at No. 3, Microchip Technology Inc. in Hauppauge ranked No. 5 and Garden City-based law firm Goldberg Segalla LLP at No. 9. Rounding out the list was Lake Success-based Broadridge Financial Solutions, Inc, an electronic data processing company, at No. 17, Suffolk Transportation Service Inc. at No. 20 and Melville-based Henry Schein, Inc., a medical supply company, at No. 23.

Eight other local employers ranked among the top 46 small employers in the state. They include Melville-based financial planner MassMutual Greater Long Island at No. 8, Greenport-based nonprofit retirement community Peconic Landing at No. 11, Syosset-based software company Cirrus Data Solutions, Inc. at No. 12, Melville-based heating and plumbing supply company SupplyHouse.com No. 15, Syosset-based National Consumer Panel at No. 31, Outreach, a nonprofit with offices in New York City and LI, at No. 34, the Port Washington-based law firm of William Mattar, P.C. at No. 39 and Hauppauge-based ClearVision Optical at No. 42.

Two other companies that are headquartered elsewhere but have a presence on LI also ranked among the top large employers statewide. Coming in fourth was Edward Jones Investments, which is based in St. Louis but has offices across New York and Long Island. QuickChek, a New Jersey-based gas station chain that recently opened locations on LI, came in at No. 19.
