    A look at salary data from the world’s top tech companies shows that, despite efforts to achieve equal pay, the wage gap persists. 

    On average, a woman working full time earns 80.7 cents for every dollar a man working full time earns. Women’s median annual earnings are $9,909 less than men’s, according to data from the US Census Bureau. And in tech, women are offered 3% less than men for the same job at the same company in, according to 2019 data from Hired, a job website that focuses on placing people in tech jobs.

    Using self-reported salary data from PayScale, a salary website and software company, analysts from Small Business Prices, a business price comparison website, looked at salary info for 10 Fortune 100 tech companies. They compared the salary data for men to women and found, on average, a consistent trend. For the most part, men consistently reported earning more than women. This data was self reported by employees and may change over time.

    The difference may be attributed to the fact that software engineers at tech companies, which make some of the highest salaries, are more likely to be male than female, as the data encompassed salary data for all roles at a company. 

    Here’s how men and women’s self-reported salaries compare at some of the world’s top tech companies, ranked by the difference between men and women’s reported salaries, with companies listed in order of how big the gender wage gap is. At all firms except for one, men self-report higher salaries than women.
