Apple has a reputation for paying employees less than some of its competitors do, but many of the company’s senior level and engineering positions do come with fatter paychecks than the industry average.Business Insider went through Payscale’s data on Apple employees to find the top paying positions at the company and to see how the pay for each of these positions compares to the industry average.

This list also does not include pay for Apple’s top executives, which is of course significantly more than what others the company make. We should also note that Payscale’s data is based on surveys of employees about their work background and compensation, so the numbers listed are not definitive. But they do paint a picture of what employees can expect to earn at the company.
