25 Highest Paying Companies For Interns

Glassdoor, a job site that features reviews from anonymous employees, just put out its annual list of the highest-paying companies for internships. There are six companies on the list that pay more than $6,000 a month (which would work out to $72,000 a year) and one company that pays more than $7,000 (or $84,000 a year).

To put that in perspective, the median household income in 2012 was $51,017.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, Glassdoor’s list is dominated by tech companies. Palantir, a company that provides data analytics to customers, including the CIA and FBI, tops the list this year. Twitter, which recently went public, comes in at No. 3 on the list, followed by LinkedIn, Facebook and Microsoft.

Glassdoor’s rankings are based on data collected from companies on the site with 20 or more intern salary reports over a 12-month period ending on Jan. 23.

Earlier this month, Glassdoor released a list of the highest-rated companies for internships, which featured many of the same names. Facebook topped that list, followed by Google and Qualcomm. Check out the infographic below for the highest paying companies for interns.
