Amazon AMZNSector: Retail

No surprise here, but at the head of the pack is (NASDAQ:AMZN) with a whopping revenue of $967,000 or so per employee. The company has pioneered the model of warehousing and e-commerce to limit costs, and without brick-and-mortar operations it can keep margins fat.

Of course, it’s worth pointing out that Costco (NASDAQ:COST) is at the head of the class, too, with over $600,000 in revenue per employee due to its bare-bones warehousing model. Compare that with typical retailers like Wal-Mart (NYSE:WMT), Target (NYSE:TGT) or Macy’s (NYSE:M) that all boast around $200,000 in revenue per employee.
