The highest-paying big Bay Area tech employer isn't a behemoth like Google, Salesforce.com or Intel. It's not even Facebook, although the typical worker at the Menlo Park social media giant takes home a whopping $240,430 annual salary.

It's Splunk Inc. — the fast-growing data-processing software firm that's doubling its Bay Area footprint and recently leased an entire new office building at San Jose’s Santana Row project.

The median worker at Splunk (NASDAQ: SPLK) makes a $256,370 per year, according to its public company filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. That's almost $16,000 more than your typical Facebook worker makes and an amazing $43,000 more than what the median Googler takes home. (Median pay means half of the company’s employees, not including the CEO, make less, and half make more.)
Ok but how many people are working there as oppose to the other companies?
