These Are The Highest-Paying Companies In America

$$$

Career review site Glassdoor on Wednesday released a list of the 25 highest-paying companies in America for 2016 -- and surprise, surprise, tech firms dominate the report. 

Major tech companies (Google, Facebook and Twitter, to name a few) account for nearly the entire list, though a few consulting firms and one credit card company made the cut, too.

“In technology, we continue to see unprecedented salaries as the war for talent is still very active, largely due to the shortage of highly skilled workers needed,” said Dr. Andrew Chamberlain, Glassdoor chief economist, in a release. “High pay continues to be tied to in-demand skills and higher education.”

The report shares each company’s median total compensation and median base salary. The companies were ranked by their median total compensation figures, based on salary reports anonymously shared on Glassdoor by employees.
