BOSTON (CBS) – A local company is on a new list of the highest-paying employers in America.
Boston Consulting Group comes in at No. 8 on Glassdoor’s ranking of the “25 Highest Paying Companies In America for 2016.”
The career website says the median paycheck at the global management consulting firm is $147,000, with median total compensation topping $150,000.
Coming in first in the country with a median total compensation of $167,534 is A.T. Kearney. You’ll have to work long and hard for that payout though, as one review on Glassdoor says some projects at the Chicago consulting firm require 80-90 hours of work a week.
The top 25 ranking is determined by looking at salary reports voluntarily shared by employees over the past year.
Here are the top 5 companies with the highest paydays – you can see the entire list on Glassdoor’s website.
1. A.T. Kearney in Chicago ($167,534)
2. Strategy& in New York ($160,000)
