A barely six-figure salary is enough for some people. But others want more — much more. And those high-dollar-minded people would do well to look for their next job in just three industries — tech, consulting and law. That’s what a new report by Glassdoor found by evaluating salary and compensation information shared by employees over the past year on the employment site.
If you are not typical but consider yourself an elite employee, however, then financial services may well be where you can land your biggest paycheck, says Chad Dean, Tempe, Ariz.-based managing partner of Sanford Rose Associates, which recruits for a number of Wall Street investment banks. Indeed, according to New York State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli, in 2014 New York City securities firms paid employees $172,860 on average in bonuses alone.
