The 10 Highest-Paying Technology Companies
A great salary probably isn't the only reason you'd accept a job offer. But if you could work in a company with a great culture—one that combines a challenging, inspiring and fun work environment with an awesome compensation package—you'd undoubtedly find that very hard to turn down. With this in mind, we're presenting the following list of the 10 highest-paying technology companies. They were compiled from the recently published "25 Highest Paying Companies in America" ranking from Glassdoor. Our tech industry-specific list includes the usual suspects, such as Google, Facebook and Twitter, but none of these major players snagged the No. 1 position. Overall, the list validates the fact that talented IT professionals are in a great position to negotiate for generous compensation packages, as organizations continue to struggle to fill tech positions with qualified candidates. In fact, 20 of the overall 25 highest paying organizations are tech companies. "High pay continues to be tied to in-demand skills and higher education," said Dr. Andrew Chamberlain, chief economist at Glassdoor. "In technology, we continue to see unprecedented salaries as the war for talent is still very active, largely due to the ongoing shortage of highly skilled workers needed." This ranking is based on salary reports that employees anonymously and voluntarily posted on the Glassdoor site. To provide further insights about each tech company, we're also featuring employee comments that were posted.
