Microsoft Pri0

Welcome to Microsoft Pri0: That's Microspeak for top priority, and that's the news and observations you'll find here from Seattle Times technology reporter Matt Day.

Microsoft has highest pay for new hires; Google highest at mid-career

PayScale is out with its latest data — including salaries — on tech companies and Microsoft ranks at the top for starting salaries.

PayScale’s report shows Microsoft offering the highest starting salaries, with a median of $91,500 per year for workers with 0-5 years of experience.

Google, though, pays more for those with 10 or more years of experience, with a median pay of $158,000.

Microsoft’s median mid-career pay is $136,000,

Amazon’s median starting pay is $73,300; its median mid-career pay is $120,000.

At Microsoft, according to PayScale, 79 percent of its employees are male, with an average age of 34.

The typical age of a tech industry employee is 33, according to PayScale, with Facebook having the youngest median age at 26, and Hewlett-Packard the oldest at 39.

At Microsoft, according to PayScale, 68 percent of employees said they were “extremely satisfied” or “fairly satisfied” — not as high a percentage as at Amazon.com (77 percent), Apple (78 percent), Google (80 percent), Facebook (88 percent), or LinkedIn (100 percent).

The PayScale data is here.
