Software Engineer Salary Survey: Google Tops List

Glassdor.com has published a report on Software Engineer Salaries at the 15 Top Tech Companies:

Of the 15 tech companies in this report, Google Software Engineers earn the highest average base salary for 2012 ($128,336). Trailing closely behind are software engineers at Facebook ($123,626), Apple ($114,413), eBay ($108,809) and Zynga ($105,568).

They also report that the national average software engineer salary is $92,648.

So, the average Software Engineer still makes less than the average Lawyer, Pharmacist, Doctor, vice president, or (much less than) Banker, but more than the average manager, accountant, or business analyst.

GM to hire up to 10,000 Software Developers

From Dr. Valtorta:

Today's lead story in the Business section of the State is about GM's plan to hire "up to" 10,000 software developers and other IT professionals in the next 3-5 years ("GM to bring computer technology in-house"). This is an Associated Press article by Tom Krisher, bylined Detroit. It is very well written. For comparison, the expected number of jobs in mechanical engineering nationwide for the same period is about the same (cf. BLS Report).
