Glassdoor did a survey of the 25 top-paying companies for software engineers.
The #1 spot is taken by Juniper with its top dollar, average base pay of $159,990.
#2 is LinkedIn (136,427).
#3 is Yahoo ($130,312).
#4 is Google ($127,143).
#5 is Twitter ($124,863).
Even though Apple is #6, and Facebook is down there at #9, it is notable that all the ‘top 25’ companies out do the $92,790 national annual average.
Glassdoor offered an interesting look, this year, by looking at the stats for average software designer salaries in major cities in the United States. San Francisco is #1 ($111,885) with San Diego and Seattle also paying out nice wages.
