Facebook was named the no. 1 best company to work for by Glassdoorâ€™s 5th Annual Employeesâ€™ Choice Awards. Sound familiar? It should, itâ€™s the second year in a row. A few common trends combined this yearâ€™s award winners. Things like a strong company culture, opportunities for advancement, and a clear understanding of the companyâ€™s direction and priorities.
An award like this doesnâ€™t happen by accident. Facebook has worked hard at creating a positive culture and actively seeking out the best of the best. Thatâ€™s where this new breed of intern comes in, and theyâ€™re rarely getting the coffee. In fact, the interns at Facebook consistently pay the highest in the country, often starting programming interns at over $70k.
Companies like Facebook hit the ground running. They are a steadily growing, fast-paced company that needs intelligent and adaptable employees. These recruits arenâ€™t a dime a dozen and Facebook knows and appreciates that.
Lori Goler, Facebookâ€™s VP of people and recruiting, said, â€œWe strive to make Facebook a place where everyone is able to have an impact doing what they love. Receiving this award is a testament to the culture of builders weâ€™ve worked hard to create.â€ Itâ€™s a beautiful thing when employer and employee know their worth. And what exactly is their worth?
The average software engineer intern at Facebook makes about $5,600 a month, thatâ€™s a whopping $67,000 a year! With the national average of employees at approximately $43,000, these interns are making far more than the average American worker. And itâ€™s not all about the pay, Facebook employees enjoy great perks like daycare, paid vacations, and bonuses for new parents. So when did interns start making so much? (Source: Recruiter.com).
