15 companies where most employees make at least $100K

Looking for a new job, but only if you are sure of the salary? Well, you are in luck because as of February public companies are now required to disclose a ratio that compares the salary of their CEO with the pay of their median employee. Some of the ratios were a bit to closely aligned with the Economic Policy Institute‘s estimation that CEOs were making as much as 270 times that of their average workers in 2016. For example at Adamczyk, the CEO makes $16.8 million and median employee is bringing in $50,296. However, with more companies being transparent about salaries you may be surprised by how much some staff are making at somewhat unlike companies (for example, it is good to work at Dunkin’ Donuts, at least if you’re in the right part of the company).

Money, based on SEC filings, put together a list of 15 companies where half of their employees are making $100,00 and above. Here are those high-paying companies.
