At Tesla, Google and these other companies, interns make over $5,000 a month (1)

While most companies pay their interns a pittance — or nothing at all — a few big firms throw stacks of money at their feet.

Industry leaders are always hunting for ambitious young talent, and they’re willing to offer high wages, exclusive perks and career-building opportunities to get it.

This spring, the job review site Glassdoor released a list of companies that flash the most cash, as reported by U.S.-based interns in the last year. Here, we count down the top 25, which all pay more than $5,000 every month. And, if you start feeling envious of interns, it's probably time to look for a better job.

25. Cisco Systems

At Tesla, Google and these other companies, interns make over $5,000 a month (2)

Median monthly pay: $5,347

Headquartered in Silicon Valley, Cisco Systems makes hardware and software for networking, cloud computing and cybersecurity. It’s a giant in the space, though most people only know the name from the logo on their router.

Internship opportunities include working as a site reliability engineer to help build software, a network support engineer to identify and resolve issues and a product software engineer to design and manage networking infrastructure.

You may either need to be pursuing or have your bachelor’s or associate’s degree to qualify, but the impressive wages will help you pay down your student loans fast.

The company says it celebrates uniqueness and it received a 4.3-star rating for diversity and inclusion on Glassdoor — so even if you’ve been told your rainbow hair and sleeve tattoos could deter you from getting a good job, Cisco won’t hold them against you.

24. Tesla

At Tesla, Google and these other companies, interns make over $5,000 a month (3)

Median monthly pay: $5,348

This year, the company was named one of the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s Best Places to Work for LGBTQ Equality and recieved a score of 100% on its corporate equality index for the sixth year in a row.

Intern positions are varied: You could work in digital content, systems software engineering, asset management, visual and graphic design or even immigration in the human resources department.

Some of the jobs may require higher education, but others stipulate prior experience and training. Tesla also promises that “instead of going on coffee runs and making copies,” you’ll play an active role in your internship.

23. Marathon Petroleum

At Tesla, Google and these other companies, interns make over $5,000 a month (4)

As an intern, you could be working as an aircraft maintenance technician, in accounting and finance or in marketing for the Clean Products Value Chain.

Marathon Petroleum offers internship and co-op opportunities to “high-performing college students who want meaningful hands-on experiences in their fields of study.”

This means you’ll need a great GPA and currently be pursuing a degree in a related program or discipline. Some positions that expect you to travel will also require a driver’s license.

Any military experience will give you an edge over other candidates — and combined with a VA home loan, you could be a happy homeowner in short order.

The company says it’s looking for “disrupters and trailblazers” — keep an eye out for the Talent Team at your university campus — and it sets up candidates fresh out of school with one-on-one coaching with mentors and provides them with plenty of networking opportunities before getting them involved in the business.

The Adobe Research site lists programs in graphics, audio, engineering, human computer interaction and more. All internships are remote this year and are open to applicants pursuing their PhD or master’s degrees.
