Enterprise architect and software development managers topped the list of tech jobs with the highest median base salaries, according to Glassdoor. On Tuesday, job search site Glassdoor released its list of the 25 highest paying jobs in America for 2018, with physician taking the highest spot, claiming a median base salary of $195,842. According to a recent survey on Glassdoor, some 67% of job seekers say a salary is a key data point that drives them to investigate a potential opening. And, that statistic is likely not much different when one dives into a particular sector or market. The report’s press release mentioned five total healthcare jobs on the Glassdoor list, including pharmacist and pharmacy manager.

We’ve found that company culture and values, career opportunities and trust in senior leadership matter most when it comes to keeping employees satisfied in their jobs long-term.»
