Salaries Surge as Talents Compete in Industry

WORLD’S TOP 25 HIGHEST-PAYING COMPANIES OF 2016

According to a compilation of salary reports from users of the jobs site Glassdoor, technology companies have accounted for most of the 25 highest paying companies this year.

Firms on consultancy appear in a distant second and Visa emerges as the only company representing finance on the list.

It was gathered that all of the companies that made the list offer median compensation of no less than $140,000. This means that half of employess earn more than that when a combination of their salaries and bonuses is made.

Also, information has it that a lot of the highest-paying employers are settled in very expensive areas like New York City and Silic on Valley. As a result they could seemingly account for the outrageous median pay.

According to Glassdoor, the most important driver of the big paychecks is the demand for highly skilled, well-educated workers.

“In technology, we continue to see unprecedented salaries as the war for talent is still very active,” said Andrew Chamberlain, Glassdoor’s chief economist.

Chamberlain, as well noted, at consulting firms, “salaries are sky-high … due to ‘barriers of entry,” which refer to employers wanting top consultants to have personal contacts, reputations and specialized skills and knowledge.
