Find Out How Much Money Tech Interns REALLY Make

Photographed by Michelle Drewes.
With tasks like coffee runs and busywork — for little to no cash — it’s safe to say most internships are far from glamorous gigs. But, for students in Silicon Valley, landing a post as an intern is hardly a financial hit. In fact, being an intern at some of the biggest tech giants around can mean you make more than most people do in a month.

Glassdoor recently conducted a study that combed through company reviews shared by interns to find the best, highest-ranked internship opportunities. Almost half of the companies in the top 25 were start-ups or larger tech companies.

Business Insider
decided to take a closer look at the list, specifically the 12 tech companies at the top. The results? Well, let’s just say between the free meals, nap pods, and sky-high monthly stipends, tech interns kind of have it made.

At Facebook, the highest-ranked tech company on Glassdoor's list, the average intern makes around $6,058 per month. An internship at Google will make you around $6,788 per month, while Yahoo only pays $5,609 per month. The average salary at Apple, Microsoft, and eBay also tops $6K. Not too shabby at all.
