There multiple companies that are willing to pay their employees six figures, and the median base salaries at each of the highest paying companies do just that. The Glassdoor team compiled this list with the top 5 companies being A.T. Kearney, Strategy&, Juniper Networks, McKinsey & Company, and Google.
Many of the top companies on the list were consulting and technology companies. According to Dr. Andrew Chamberlain, Glassdoor Chief Economist, we see so many of these companies on the list partially because high pay continues to be tied to in-demand skills and higher education:
“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. 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.”
