The eight-hour day probably seems like a thing of the distant past—that is, unless you have one of the jobs below.
According to a new survey from career website Glassdoor, while work-life balance has continued to decrease over the past six years, there are still areas where employees are happy with the amount of time they spend on the clock.
It’s not just one industry getting the perk, either. Jobs on the top-25 list range from data scientist, to substitute teacher, to marketing manager. To find positions where work-life balance consistently comes up as a plus, Glassdoor looked at its company reviews. Users who review a company can also rate several workplace attributes of their job, including work-life balance, on a scale of 1-5. To make Glassdoor’s list, a job title had to have been rated by at least 75 people with that position at two or more companies, and 15 percent of reviews for the job title had to cite work-life balance as a pro.
While these roles all rank high for the amount of time you can spend at the office, some of them don’t pay as well as others. Data scientists, who make nearly $115,000 annually, took the No. 1 spot in both work-life balance and salary. Meanwhile, lab assistants and substitute teachers were paid less than one- fourth of that: $27,550 and $24,380, respectively.
The list above is a portion of the top-25 list, which is available here.
