Main image of article Tech Firms Top List of Best-Paying Companies
Glassdoor's just unveiled a list of top companies for compensation and benefits. The point of the survey isn't to measure “happiness”—there's another list for that—but instead to shed light on whose employees are the most satisfied with the very basic foundation blocks of employment: pay, benefits and perks. Fourteen of the 25 companies listed are in tech, including four of the top five: Google topped the list, Facebook was No. 3, followed by Adobe and Epic Systems (Costco held the second spot). Here's how the tech companies fared: Google and Facebook always seem to appear high on these surveys, but this is the first time we’ve seen Verona, Wisc.-based Epic make such a prominent appearance. Many reviewers at the company say their jobs are well-paid and the culture is smart and satisfying. However, they warn that work-life balance isn’t always there and the travel schedule of implementers can be grueling. Glassdoor's Scott Dobroski told the Wisconsin State Journal that the medical software company's ratings have been on the rise over the past three or four years. “That likely means they're changing things inside and employees are much more satisfied than they were a few years ago,” he said.
