Was it the unlimited paid time off that put Starr Tincup on Texas Monthly's top workplace list?

Starr Tincup, a Fort Worth marketing agency, thinks it was its air hockey table that won it a spot on Texas Monthly’s "Best Companies to Work for in Texas 2011" edition.

Starr Tincup points to its medical coverage (it pays 100 percent of employee and dependent premiums), unlimited paid vacation ("Take what you need, when you need it"), dollar-for-dollar match on first 4 percent of employee contributions to their 401(k), casual workplace ("We’re a shorts and T-shirt, beer-in-the-fridge kind of place"), "fascinating work," and "awesome location" along Magnolia Avenue on Fort Worth’s Near South Side.

But all that aside, "I think it was the air hockey table that put us over the top," said Kevin Mangum, a Starr Tincup partner. "It’s too easy to point to outstanding benefits, great clients, and happy hours at The Usual," apparently a favorite Fort Worth bar to the Starr Tincup workforce.

Among Texas Monthly’s eligibility criterion, employers must have at least 15 people working in Texas to be considered for the mag’s annual ranking.
