"Seattle area high-tech firms typically pay less than those in the San Francisco Bay area, although the cost of living is lower in the rainy city. However, both are still out front of tech pay in the rest of the nation.

"That's the bottom line according to a new report published by tech employment tracker Glassdoor.

"Overall, tech salaries have begun to grow again, if slowly, after two years of declines and stagnation.

"Still, potential employees have a lot to consider when making job decisions.

"For instance, Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) and Amazon.com (NASDAQ: AMZN), both Washington state stalwarts, pay more on average for technical talent than the rest of the nation -- the Bay Area excluded. The report was published on Glassdoor's blog earlier this month."
