Default Small companies that pay well?

As above.

Most people associate small companies with local SMEs that pay below average wages.

Any exception to them?

Almost none. In fact in Sg, SMEs make profit because they make full use of the 3rd world labour salary and charge 1st world prices for things. They're not even running a business. It's more they're running an organisation to exploit people. That's why in Sg, you can see mediocre people succeeding as business owners (as long as they have rich parents to fund them) and they earn more than they would ever earn for someone of their calibre.

There's no shortage of labour like they're claiming. What they mean is there's a shortage of labour willing to accept 3rd world salaries.

HFT firms. They are mostly tiny (< 50 ppl) and pay very well.

How do you expect small companies to pay well?

They have smaller revenue, means smaller R&D fund-> slower innovation -> less competitive -> comparatively poorer performance -> comparatively poorer revenue -> lower increment in salary -> lower pay.

some small companies earn so much, they just keep all profits to themselves!

Plenty of SME bosses driving european cars and living on landed property. They achieve this by underpaying their staff. When they can't find cheap labour anymore, they say they can't find workers! Singapore's unemployment is equivalent to around 60,000 people jobless!
