10 Highest Paying U.S. Tech Companies In 2016

10 Highest-Paying Tech Companies In America For 2016

Looking to work for a tech company that offers a lucrative salary? Here’s a cheat sheet based on Glassdoor’s list of the highest paying US tech companies in 2016.

Several companies are offering employees lucrative salary of six figures, if you work at a technology or consulting company, according to online employment company Glassdoor.

The company has compiled a list of the 10 highest-paying tech companies in the U.S., based on the highest median total compensation packages, which includes base salary and other forms of compensation, such as commissions, tips and bonuses. Only companies with at least 50 salary reports during that timeframe were considered.

“This report reinforces that high pay continues to be tied to in-demand skills and higher education, which in turn, is why we see several companies on this list among the consulting and technology industries,” Glassdoor’s Chief Economist Andrew Chamberlain said in a press release.

“Salaries are sky-high at consulting companies due to ‘barriers of entry’ in this field, which refers to employers wanting top consultants to have personal contacts, reputations and specialized skills and knowledge,” Chamberlain added. “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.”
