Boston: Employees at social networking site Facebook are the youngest, satisfied and yet the most stressed, among workers at major US technology companies, according to a new report that also said staffers at Google are best paid as compared to those at other tech companies.
Seattle-based research firm PayScale said Facebook employees are the most satisfied and the Mark Zuckerberg-led company had the lowest median age - 26.
It also had the highest portion of female workers at 33 per cent, among nine of the industry’s top businesses.
A typical worker at Facebook is only 26 years of age, compared with a typical age of 36 across the other companies.
Workers at Facebook are the most satisfied with their jobs, while those at Hewlett-Packard are the least satisfied.
The report said while Facebook employees may be the most satisfied with their work, they are also some of the most stressed.
“With a CEO who is 27, it is not surprising to find many who work at Facebook are young, excited to work there and a little stressed out,” said Al Lee, director of quantitative analysis at PayScale.
The report said median pay for Google employees is 23% higher than similar workers performing similar roles at other companies.
PayScale’s Technology Company Salary and Job Satisfaction Report examined the characteristics of Amazon, Apple, Dell, Facebook, Google, Hewlett-Packard, IBM, Intel and Microsoft.
