Google New York HQ

Given the kind of perks that tech companies give their employees these days, it’s not surprising that employees at these companies are pretty happy with their pay and benefits.

Job-hunting site Glassdoor today released a list of the top 25 companies for compensation and benefits, as ranked by employees, and more than half of the list was tech companies.

This list was based on feedback from employees over the last year who rated their satisfaction with the salary and compensation on a five-point scale.

Several tech companies on the list will surprise you.
