Methodology: For a job title to be considered for Glassdoor’s 25 Highest Paying Jobs in America report, job titles must receive at least 100 salary reports shared by U.S.-based employees over the past year (7/1/17 - 6/30/18). To ensure the most reliable median base salary for all job titles, Glassdoor also applies a proprietary statistical algorithm to estimate annual median base pay, which controls for factors such as location and seniority. The number of job openings per job title represents active job listings on Glassdoor as of 7/19/18. This report takes into account job title normalization that groups similar job titles. C-suite level jobs were excluded from this report.
