Glassdoor Economist Pay Overview

What is the pay outlook for Operations?

Operations roles are critical as employers navigate an increasingly global business environment. The rise of globalization and e-commerce mean supply chains and inventory management are increasingly important. The educational requirements for operations are increasing as data and technology become essential for managing complex operations. As demand for these skills and workers grows, pay should increase as well.
