If you want to land a six-figure job, your best bet is to apply to a tech company.
This isn't too shocking. "Tech companies are in such high competition with one another and they're all searching for a niche skill set," says Scott Dobroski, Glassdoor's community expert. While other factors, such as workplace culture, job location, and benefits, play into someone's decision to take a job, higher compensation could be the make-or-break factor in a candidate's decision to go to Google over Facebook or vice versa.
Despite the many major tech companies that you'll see on this year's list, you'll notice one glaring omission: Apple. But there's a reason for that. Though Apple pays well, Glassdoor considers all positions at a company when determining median compensation. Apple's average is lowered once you factor in the salaries of retail employees, Dobroski says.
