To decide the highest-paying job titles, the positions had to receive at least 100 salary reports shared by employees based in the U.S. over the past year (7/1/17 – 6/30/18). Glassdoor also utilized their own proprietary statistical algorithm to estimate annual median base pay.
A survey by Glassdoor found that salary was a major factor when job seekers were searching for new positions. The study found that 67 percent of job seekers considered salary when scanning job listings, more than any other piece of information on ads.
