Want a starting tech job with great pay? Try Microsoft Corp., which has an average starting salary for those with zero to five years experience of $91,500 per year.
That's according to Payscale, which reports that Microsoft's starting salary is the highest in the tech industry but Amazon.com Inc., at No. 6, isn't too bad either, at $73,300. Payscale adds that after 10 years, you could could be making $136,000 at Microsoft and $130,000 at Amazon, but leading that category is Google Inc., where you could be making $158,000 after 10 years.
Microsoft benefits include a health club membership and paternity leave and Payscale notes that Amazon's "casual dress" policy is a benefit.
