If you are looking for a job with high pay, Glassdoor has your number. The employment website Glassdoor ranked job titles by average base salary. For a job to be considered it had to receive at least 100 salary reports. The company used a statistical algorithm to standardize base pay numbers, controlling for factors like location and seniority.

Here are the takeaways:

  • It's all about healthcare and especially technology. Out of the top 25 jobs listed 13 were in technology, two more than last year.
  • To be sure, some of these jobs require years of training, but many of these career paths are set to reward workers for years to come.
  • Weigh the pay against the costs of education to be in that field. Physicians may earn a median salary of $195,000, but they typically are in school for eight years, internships add to the length of that education experience. Pharmacists and pharmacy managers earn top pay and their educational requirements are far less.
