Why do you work? Oh, right we said that already in another article. It’s money. Ok, but how do you get the most buck for your bang? You get a job in one of the best paying companies in the world. And we have them all compiled nice and tidy in a list. Isn’t that great? Quick note though. We take into account financial compensation as well as benefits and perks.

10. Monsanto

PENSACOLA, FL - 25 MAY: Protesters in Pensacola, FL gather on May 25, 2013 to support worldwide "March Against Monsanto" rallies over GMO (genetically modified) foods and lack of labeling.

The infamous chemical and agricultural company has made it to yet another list. Apart from being a pioneer in trying to control global food supplies and giving cancer to people, Monsanto pays really well and offers major benefits. According to its employees (so it has to be true), this particular bastion of darkness really cares about the safety and well being of its people. Yep, evil pays. Big-time.

9. Salesforce

SAN FRANCISCO CA/USA - MAY 31 2014: Salesforce.com corporate headquarters. Salesforce.com Inc. is a global cloud computing company headquartered in San Francisco California known for its customer relationship management (CRM) product.

Things are even better in the cloud-computing software world, with Salesforce occupying place number nine on our list of big spenders. Apart from the general good vibe and opportunities this company offers (did we mention the trips to Hawaii?), annual salaries range from $103,150 to $131,282 depending on seniority and qualifications.

8. Chevron

MOAB USA - JUNE 22 2013: People fill up their cars at Chevron gas station in Moab Utah USA. Chevron is a multinational energy corporation it employs 64600 people (2013).

Chevron may be one of those petroleum and energy companies that are destroying our planet, but at least it’s not the worst of the lot (cough…Exxon Valdez…cough…BP Deepwater Horizon). Plus it offers considerably good pay along with an overall friendly environment, reasonable work schedule and many opportunities to work abroad. All and all, not the worst.


Insurance concept: computer keyboard with word Insurance Agent, selected focus

USAA is in the insurance industry, and in times of uncertainty such as these, there’s no business like insurance business. The benefits, bonuses and general perks are great, plus there’s no shortage of room to innovate and explore new ideas. Bottom line is you’ll make a lot of money working for these guys and in the business of staving off existential dread you’ll always have work.

6. Intuit

3D image concept of software (Robot Trading System) used in the stock market that automatically

Intuit is one of those companies that make personal finance software, whatever that means. I guess if you need personal finance software you probably have lots of money. In that context, making products for the rich is a pretty lucrative deal. And that shows in the average annual salary for an Intuit software engineer, reaching upwards of $103,000. Working for Intuit is a good deal. You can see yourself being really into it.

5. Epic Systems

Healthcare Technology With a Human Body Scan Concept 3D Render

There’s something even more epic than the name of this healthcare software company. It’s not really the money, because although software developers clear something along the lines of $89,400 per year, there are other companies which beat that. The great thing about working for Epic Systems is the benefits and the seriously epic health insurance plan they offer. These things can really eat up a huge chunk of your paycheck if you have to take care of them yourself, you know.

4. Adobe

SAN JOSECA/USA - MAY 11 2014: Adobe Systems headquarters in Silicon Valley.

Ok, now we are getting to familiar names. Adobe is one of the world’s biggest software developers as you are very well aware of, since you probably own a pirated copy of one of their platforms. The people behind Photoshop, Premiere, Indesign and Illustrator can get paid over $123,000 per year, even with teenagers everywhere stealing the crap out of their products. Oh, and they also offer pet insurance which is adorable.

3. Facebook

Facebook app on the Apple iPhone display and desktop version of Facebook on the Apple Macbook Pro

I bet you were expecting this one. Facebook is a ridiculously successful company, basically thanks to the fact that people love stalking each other online. They make so much money that they can’t help but invest in other fields apart from social networking. Human resources is one of the things they really invest into, as paying their people well is less a necessity than a show of power. Production engineers make more than $131,000 annually, and I think you’ll agree that’s more than fair for having to go through so many people’s dick pics.

2. Costco

READING, UK - SEPTEMBER 14, 2014: Exterior view of the Costco warehouse

Everyone knows that retail is where dreams go to die, so it makes sense that people working at Costco must have something going for them. This retail warehouse mogul pairs its sweet salary with great benefits plus vacation time and an hours-worked raise calculation system. If you ask us it’s not even close to enough for enduring the horrors of retail, but it’s a good start.

1. Google

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA, USA - AUG 14, 2014: Exterior view of Google office. Google is a multinational company specializing in Internet related services and products.

Was there ever any doubt that Google is the undisputed king of this list? Google is the Muhammad Ali of best paying companies and in no small part thanks to the fact that it’s headed for world domination. You know with the help of their secret robot army. You didn’t know that? Oh, ok, here’s $146,000 to forget about the whole thing; almost as much as the average Google product manager makes in a year.

    I think this is a very useful article, because your salary is one of the most important aspects of a job. It's very interesting to see which jobs have the best payment, although I would like to see which jobs we are talking about here, since there is a huge difference between the salary of a ceo or a person who works at a desk. Overall a very interesting and useful article.

      Thank you, Laurent! And a very good remark as well. We are talking about the average salary here, which can indeed be a bit tricky. Generalising always is ...

    Freelancing maү also lead to ann enormous “plus” concerning your income. As a substitute of gettingg to settle fօr the рrecise salary thats offered by the one reցulation firm that you just work, you have aan excessive amount of leeway in settіng your individual pay rates. This factoг can leаd to considerably more cash for you.
