Google has been ranked the best employer for pay and perks

In news that will surprise nobody, Google has been ranked the company with the best pay and perks, according to a report from Glassdoor released Friday. “The company really takes care of us professionally and personally,” according to a review from a senior software engineer based in Mountain View, California. “The benefits are incredibly high. My team has been on offsites to Tahoe, Vegas, and Hawaii in the last year.” Also unsurprising: Overall, tech companies made a strong showing in Glassdoor’s list of the top 25 companies for compensation and benefits.

Google and three other Silicon Valley companies recently settled a lawsuit alleging that they agreed not to recruit each other’s employees. Maybe Google didn’t need to worry about poaching. The search giant ranked as the top U.S. employer for compensation and benefits, according to employee ratings compiled by Glassdoor. Facebook ranked third. Overall, 12 tech companies ranked in the top 25. How much do Google employees make? Glassdoor shared survey results for software engineers at five top tech firms. Those show software engineers at Google have an average base salary of $128,000. Apple software engineers did slightly better, making $132,000. Facebook’s made $120,000 and Microsoft‘s and Amazon’s made closer to $111,000 and $105,000 respectively.
