They say money isn’t the most important thing when it comes to finding a job, but a great paycheque doesn’t usually hurt. People don’t usually say, “You know, that’s just too much money. I think I’ll take the other job because it pays less.”

So, if you’re wondering where those paycheques are, Fortune recently released a list of its 100 Best Companies to Work For, and followed it with a list of the 10 companies that pay the most of the 100 Best Companies to Work For. So, these guys pretty much have it all.

The list is U.S. based, but we don’t live in a bubble. You might want to move to the U.S. And a few of these organizations, such as Autodesk and Cisco, have offices in Canada.

Here are ten top paying companies complete with salary information.

Fortune says of Seattle-based list topper Perkins Coie, “Employees who work at least 25 hours a week receive full medical and dental coverage, as well as a free taxi ride home if they get sick on the job. Furthermore, employees are eligible for up to $5,250 per year in college tuition reimbursement.”

Medical coverage is, of course, a bigger deal in the United States.
