Median pay of S&P500 companies

The Wall Street Journal has a interesting article on median pay of S&P 500 companies which contains a few of the tech giants. Here are some interesting numbers:

  • S&P500 median pay: $69k
  • Alphabet / Google: $197k
  • Facebook: $240k
  • Amazon: $28k

Obviously, the composition of the work force of each of these companies greatly influences the median pay. Interestingly enough Apple is one of the companies missing from this report even though it’s part of the S&P500 AFAIK.
