Note: The definition for "largest employers" were those companies listed by ReferenceUSA as having 250 or more employees at a single Missouri location.  Large multi-location employers were then added to the list based on the same consideration of overall employment size.  Of course, the companies listed may be subject to significant employment fluctuations in the present or future.
