Despite the high pay and jaw-dropping perks found across the tech industry, giants like Amazon and Apple can’t avoid the job-hopping nature of today’s workforce.

The company with the longest average retention is Facebook, where employees spend around 2.02 years at the company, according to Paysa, a company which publicizes salary data.

On the low end of the spectrum is Uber, where employees spend an average of just 1.23 years. That makes former CEO Travis Kalanick an outlier, with his 6.5 year stint at the ride-sharing company — though as a cofounder it’s natural that he would have a much lengthier tenure than the average staffer.

But it’s clear that Uber has a lot of work to do when it comes to convincing employees to stick around.

Here’s how long employees are staying at the 10 biggest companies in tech:

  • Facebook: 2.02 years
  • Google: 1.90 years
  • Oracle: 1.89 years
  • Apple: 1.85 years
  • Amazon: 1.84 years
  • Twitter: 1.83 years
  • Microsoft: 1.81 years
  • Airbnb: 1.64 years
  • Snap Inc.: 1.62 years
  • Uber: 1.23 years
