Glassdoor put together a list of the 25 companies that pay the highest salaries in the United States, and the results aren’t that surprising. Most of the high-rolling employers are in tech, plus a few consulting firms.
Other fields that offer some of the highest-paying jobs, especially healthcare, don’t make the cut because their employers don’t pay the rest of their staffs that much money.
The top companies are ranked by the median total compensation they provide, which includes bonuses. Glassdoor relied on members of its own site who reported their salaries to compile the list.
“This report reinforces that high pay continues to be tied to in-demand skills and higher education, which in part, is why we see several companies on this list among the consulting and technology industries,” Glassdoor Chief Economist Andrew Chamberlain said in the report.
“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.”
