The first non-tech firm comes in third, and is consulting firm McKinsey & Company, which pays its employees a total median salary of £85,500 and a median base salary of £78,000.Familiar tech names make the top 10, with Facebook, Cisco Systems and Google putting in an appearance, although SAP leaves its competition far behind in the race to be the highest paid employer in the United Kingdom. BCG, Deutsche Bank, Nomura and BNP Paribas complete the list.

Glassdoor's chief economist Dr Andrew Chamberlain said that in the tech industry, salaries are high largely because of deficit of the highest skilled employees needed to advance business into new realms. Occupations such as JavaScript developers, data scientists and database administrators are in high demand nowadays and because of that companies are willing to pay large salaries to those who have these IT skills.
