For software engineers, not only are salaries on the rise as companies compete for talent, but there are also lively job markets in cities across the U.S.

Big-name companies like Google, Apple, and Facebook aren't necessarily paying their engineers the most (although they're up there).

A new survey by Glassdoor lists the top 25 companies that have paid their engineers the highest salaries over the last year. The winner is Juniper Networks, paying $159,990 for its software engineers' average base salary. That's way ahead of other companies on the list.

Coming in No. 2 is LinkedIn, which pays its software engineers $136,427, and No. 3 is Yahoo paying $130,312. Google and Twitter make up No. 4 and No. 5 on the list. Apple is No. 6, and Facebook is No. 9.
