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).
