Ever wondered how your company's payment compares to that of other companies. Are you thinking about hopping the ship onto greener pastures? Glassdoor, an online job and recruiting portal, identified the highest paid companies in 2019. As dominated by Glassdoor's highest paid job list, Tech also dominates the list of highest paid companies. Twenty of the 25 highest paid companies are technically savvy.
Palo Alto Networks, a multinational cybersecurity company headquartered in Santa Clara, California, is in the lead in 2019 with an average annual salary of $ 170,929. This is followed by NVIDIA (NVDA), Twitter (TWTR), Gilead Sciences (GILD), and Google (togetL).
These companies share not only an industry but also a home: the San Francisco Bay Area. "These big tech employers are fighting hard to provide competitive salaries that allow them to hire and retain truly skilled workers," said Glassdoor's senior research analyst, Amanda Stansell.
If you are looking for a job at one of these high-paying companies, but do not live in the Bay Area, hope is not lost. "Many of these companies have offices throughout the United States. So you do not need to be based in California to work for one of the highest paid companies. "Stansell tells Yahoo Finance.
There is no question that salary is an important consideration for jobseekers, but Glassdoor's research shows that it's not actually one of the most important factors when it comes to long-term employee satisfaction. In fact, three factors are most important for satisfaction in your daily work: culture and values, trust in leadership and career opportunities. "Well, while the pay is important. This should not be the only factor that you consider in your application. "
