These days, major companies don't skimp when it comes to starting salaries and other exciting perks.

According to a recent poll, companies such as Facebook, Google, Snapchat, and Twitter can offer six-figure annual salaries to new graduates and that doesn't include stipends, stock options, and signing bonuses.

The poll was conducted by Jesse Collins, who is finishing up his final semester at Purdue University and will be working for Seattle-based start-up Curalate post graduation. As of Friday, he received nearly 600 responses, 290 from new grads and 298 from interns, about offers received for start dates in 2017. (The survey is still open if you're interested in submitting your own job offer data.)

The findings were making the rounds on Friday after Collins, who conducted similar research last year, .

The data in his tweet refers to the mode average, rather than the mean, so outliers and people who negotiated their salaries would not affect it. Crunching the numbers this way gives a better idea of the standard offers that these companies make, he explains to CNBC.

Below, we've highlighted the annual base salary, stock offers and stipends per year, as well as signing bonuses, that new grads can earn at 12 major companies.
