Internships: Which Companies Pay the Highest?

Among the various perks of pursuing undergraduate studies in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) are the internships. Most STEM interns not only gain experience, but also a competitive salary. A recent Glassdoor report reveals the 25 Highest Paying Companies for Interns and it comes as no surprise that the tech industry dominates with 19 companies making the list. Companies in oil, gas, energy, and utilities sector make up the remainder. Palantir Technologies ranks #1 on the list with interns bringing in an average monthly pay of $7,012. WMWare, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Facebook round out the top five. Of the top 25 employers, 18 are located in the San Francisco Bay Area, no doubt stemming from Silicon Valley, headquarters for many of the world’s largest technology corporations and small startups.
