Here is a list I copied from Amazon. It's pretty exhaustive. As far as rates of pay go, I know the New York Phil. is one of the highest paid orchestras in world, if not the highest. As for the rest, I can only assume that the top flight ensembles like Chicago, Philly, Boston and LA are up around the top as well. I think it's pretty impossible (and stupid) to try and create a rank order. Everyone's got their own personal favourite/s.

Here's the list:
Atlanta Symphony Orchestra
Baltimore Symphony Orchestra
Boston Symphony Orchestra
Chicago Symphony Orchestra
Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra
Cleveland Orchestra
Dallas Symphony Orchestra
Houston Symphony
Los Angeles Philharmonic
Metropolitan Opera
Minnesota Orchestra
National Symphony Orchestra
New York Philharmonic
Philadelphia Orchestra
Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra
Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra
San Francisco Symphony
Seattle Symphony

Hope to of be been a little help!
