We’ve covered the war for talent among startups and larger tech firms in Silicon Valley, but after Google issued employees a $1,000 bonus and 10 percent raise, Glassdoor took a look at how well people at Google were paid, and specifically, how well its software engineers are paid in contrast with peers at Yahoo, Facebook and other tech name brands. Judging by the software engineer wages, Google doesn’t pay as well as Facebook when it comes to salary, but it does deliver fatter bonuses, which even things out a bit.

However, for those solely seeking lucre, Cisco and Yahoo also offer salaries on the high end. Of course, money isn’t everything for most people, so hours, colleagues, the freedom to tinker and the ability to solve interesting problems all contribute to attracting employees.
