"Top Companies for Compensation & Benefits"

A new survey by Glassdoor puts Google as the number one place to work with Costco coming in second. The technology news site The Verge has a summary of the survey...

If a big paycheck is what you're after, Google is your best option among potential employers in Silicon Valley. In fact, the company also bests non-tech businesses when it comes to compensation and benefits. Google ranked first in a new survey from Glassdoor, coming in ahead of Facebook, Microsoft, Adobe and others. Engineers in Mountain View enjoy an average base salary of $128,000. Facebook’s engineers make slightly less at $120,000. Microsoft and Amazon round out the list of top tech firms, paying base salaries of $111,000 and $105,000.

Based on discussions I've had with people that work at Costco, I can back up the the claim that it's a top organization when it comes to compensation. Not just base pay though, they have a great benefits and work-life balance. Costco is a big-box store that I feel good about spending my money because they treat their employees with respect as evidenced by the excellent total compensation they offer.
