"With nearly half the list comprised of jobs in the tech and healthcare industries, this report reinforces that higher salaries are found in America's fastest job-creating sectors, which require higher education and in-demand skill sets," said Dr. Andrew Chamberlain, Glassdoor Chief Economist in a statement.
"However, while pay is one of the leading factors job seekers consider when determining where to work, our research shows that salary isn't necessarily tied to long-term job satisfaction. Rather, the factors that employers should focus on to drive employee satisfaction long-term are having great senior leadership, positive culture and values, and clear upward career opportunities for employees,” he said.
