They include government entities, retailers, media/marketing companies, restaurants/clubs, and hotels. They have anywhere from 45 to roughly 700 employees here. The list isn’t exhaustive, but it gives a sense of who some of the big employers are.

Also in the list’s top five are Target (retail), IAC/CityGrid Media (an internet media company), the House of Blues (a now-closed music club), and the City itself (with 216 employees in 2014).
