It’s good to be in healthcare. It’s really good to work in the tech sector. Both career areas fared well in a recently released report on some of the best paying jobs in 2017

The list – one of a couple we’ve covered that focus on positions with a good salary – was compiled by Glassdoor.com—a job search platform with extensive data on salary and compensation.

Topping this year’s list was the position of Physician, or doctor. That role brings with it a median annual base salary of $187,876.

Another position that brings in healthy wages is Pharmacy Manager, which came in second place. A pharmacy manager earns a median base salary of $149,064, according to Glassdoor’s calculations.

In third place we find Patent Attorney, a role that brings in $139,272 in median income.

Overall, 11 of the top 25 jobs on Glassdoor’s roster were technology realm positions. The healthcare field yielded six jobs for the report.

“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. “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.”

In compiling its list, Glassdoor only considered positions that had accrued at least 100 salary reports shared by U.S.-based employees on its site over the past year.
