Glassdoor is out with its annual report on the 25 highest-paying jobs in America, over half of which, 13, are in the technology sector.
Taking the top three spots, however, are physicians, pharmacy managers and pharmacists – with average salaries of $195,842, $146,412 and $127,120 respectively.
In tech, enterprise architects, software development managers, software engineering managers and software architects were the highest paid professions, with the lowest average salary at over $100,000.
The report gathered salary data from millions of employees, examined job titles that received a minimum of 100 salary reports over the past year, and used algorithms to estimate the median annual base pay. C-suite-level jobs were excluded from the report. –Bloomberg
“Technology and health care are the two industries that are making the greatest impact on the economy,” said Glassdoor community expert Sarah Stoddard. “There’s a high demand but short supply for those roles, driving up salaries.”
Meanwhile, about 70% of those surveyed said salary is a key factor in determining a career, while 27% of Americans say they “don’t have a good sense of their career path” and 25% say they feel like they’re “on a treadmill going nowhere,” according to a Wednesday LinkedIn survey of 2,000 professionals.
And despite men dominating the country’s highest paying jobs, tech companies employ nearly twice as many males as females vs. health care, according to a 2017 report by Linkedin.
Interestingly, over half of employed Americans are looking to leave their current jobs, according to a July Gallup survey, while the average American remains in the same job for approximately a decade.
