These days, interns aren't just fetching coffee, they're fetching some major paychecks. That's according to the latest report from Glassdoor on the highest paying companies for interns in 2014, where the top five with the highest compensation all come from the tech sector.
Facebook (FB) is No. 5, paying its interns about $6,200 a month, on average. Facebook also ranked fifth on Glassdoor's list of the Best Places to Work in 2014, likely for great perks and benefits like free food and transportation, dry cleaning and day care reimbursement.
LinkedIn (LNKD) edges out Facebook, paying its interns $6,230 a month, on average, and also came in third on Glassdoor's list of best places to work this year. Employees testified that there is a great company culture, work-life balance and employee benefits and perks.
Twitter (TWTR) offers a variety of internships in areas like consumer marketing and software engineering -- and pays nearly $6,800 a month. Twitter also came in as the second-best place to work in 2014, with extra benefits like catered breakfast and lunch in its San Francisco office, gym membership reimbursement, weekly in-office yoga and pilates classes and dry cleaning service.
The second-highest paying internships can be found at VMware (VMW), where the average monthly base pay is just shy of $7,000. VMware said its interns help build innovative IT products and shape its customers journey to the cloud.
