Map Best-Paying Company All States


With the job market always seeming to be challenging, we are constantly on the lookout for information and tips to help out our readers when comes to employment and their careers.

From what blunders to avoid to job qualifications to knowing when it might be time to move on, we try to seek out and share anything we think might be of use.

Today we have some new job data compiled by Money magazine who put together a very informative interactive map highlightingthe best paying employer headquartered in each of America’s 50 states.

Using figures compiled by the AFL-CIO for companies in the Russell 3000 stock market index, Money came up with the median pay, aka the mid-point for each company’s payroll, and figured out which company in each state pays the best.

As they point out, many of these top-paying employers have rather small staffs — a few dozen employees or fewer — in niche markets like managing real estate or biotechnology, but there are definitely some exceptions as you will see below.

Here’s a sampling of some of the highest-paying companies by state.
