Apple might be one of the best technology companies but it does not seem to be the best place to work – at least going by what an average employee would earn. According to a recent post on New Yorker, while Apple is a great bet for investors, the average employee in the United States takes home just around $46,000.
Do note that this number is inclusive of employees at all levels of the workforce – right from engineers to janitors, sales associates,etc. Excluding those employees at the Apple Stores, the average income raises to $107,719 which is relatively higher but is still not accurate given that Apple retail stores employ a significant chunk of the workforce.
Apple has seen a lot of success in the past couple of years and that has seen its stock rise significantly. The company is now among the biggest companies in the world and it will be interesting to see if Apple would now be looking at better incentivizing its employees who have contributed to its success by hiking their salaries.
