Companies That Pay Employees Well

A six-figure salary may sound like it’s reserved for the C-suite, but at certain companies, it’s the standard for most employees.

As part of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, public companies have to report the pay ratio between their median employee and CEO, which means you can now find out how much the median worker makes.

Looking at Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filings, recently compiled a list of 15 companies where half of the employees make at least six figures. And some of the companies on their list may surprise you (check out No. 14).

What’s not surprising, though, is that almost all of these companies have jobs on Monster. Looking for a high-paying job? Click through the full list below to see which companies are hiring now.
