    Tech Vendors Dominate List of Highest Paying Firms

    By Dennis McCafferty
 

Money isn't everything, but it certainly can help solve a lot of problems. So it's good to know that nine of the 15 employers on Glassdoor's recently released "America's 15 Highest Paying Companies" are technology firms. Other organizations on the list are also constantly seeking top IT talent and are clearly willing to pay for it. The tech companies featured here include an Emmy-award-winning streaming media powerhouse, a virtualization giant and a Web browser pioneer. Tech "salaries are high largely because of shortages of the highest skilled employees needed to advance business into new realms," according to Glassdoor's accompanying report. "Booming demand for software engineers, database administrators and data scientists has far outpaced the supply of these skilled, hard-to-find employees. With companies scrambling to poach these valuable workers from competitors, a bidding war has pushed tech salaries to unprecedented heights in recent years." Glassdoor based its list on compensation data collected from its site users, focusing on companies with at least 30 salary reports.
