When it comes to location, the highest average paycheck (about $78K per year) can be spotted in Portland, Ore.; Austin, Texas ($66K), Los Angeles, Calif. ($65K), and Houston, Texas (about $54K) are the next top-paying cities. Those interested in increasing earning potential should avoid the city of St. Petersburg, Fla. — at $40K, salaries are some of the lowest in the country.

Benefits and Perks

The company is somewhat lacking in the benefits department, and only a third of workers report compensation for sick days and vacation time. Employees can save for retirement by joining one of several savings plans such as a 401(k) plan and a 403(b) plan. A large number of workers report having health insurance, and a strong majority of employees report having dental coverage. Advantages of working here also include life insurance, a subsidized cell phone, and a casual working environment.
