The question of whether employers should pay their interns is a hot-button issue these days, and one that has had some significant ripple effects, such as Condé Nast's decision to end its long-running internship program this past October.

But not all internship programs are unpaid – or even low paying, for that matter. Some pay minimum wage, some pay more than minimum wage and some pay significantly more (in terms of pay per month) than the median U.S. income, according to career database Glassdoor's latest ranking of the 25 top-paying companies for interns.

Unsurprisingly, almost every company on Glassdoor's list is big and in the tech field. Facebook ranks high on the list, paying its interns an average of $6,321 a month, but there are four other companies that pay even more.
