我們想讓你知道的是

美國職業資訊網「Glassdoor」將公司高層職位除外,公布了全美前25的高薪工作。雖然教育程度和專業技能跟薪水高低息息相關,優渥的薪水和工作滿意度卻無畫上等號。

Glassdoor」是一個企業員工可以匿名分享自己公司內部資訊的平臺,從2008年上市至今,已累積了來自世界190個國家、超過3,000萬的用戶。

「Glassdoor」利用其上百萬條評價和數據,發佈多項指標性的企業職場報告,近期公布了本年度全美前25大高薪的工作,引起媒體高度關注,進入本文前,先想想如何表達以下單字:

(A) 薪酬福利:compensation
(B) 中間值:median
(C) 年薪六位數:a six-figure salary.

What are you most concerned with when you are job hunting? According to a survey conducted by Careers site Glassdoor, nearly 7 in 10 respondents (68%) reported that salary and (A) compensation would be valued the most before accepting a job. Earlier this month, Glassdoor ranked the top 25 high-paying jobs with C-suite level(註1) ones excluded. Take a look and see if your job is on the list.

【譯】求職的時候什麼是你最在乎的條件?美國求職論壇Glassdoor的一項調查顯示,多達七成的受訪者表示薪水和薪酬福利絕對是轉換跑道時的首要考量。這個月初,Glassdoor將公司高層職位除外,公布了全美前25的高薪工作,來看看你的工作是否也在名單之中?

With two factors considered – (B) median base salaries and number of job openings, physicians took the top spot (註2) with a median base salary of $180,000 and 2,064 job openings. Lawyers seized second place at $144,500, with 995 job openings while third place went to research and development managers. Other than these traditionally highly-paid positions, it's no surprise to see that 11 of the top 25 highest paying jobs are within tech and engineering sectors Glassdoor's findings demonstrate that higher salaries go hand-in-hand(註3)with higher education and skills that are in demand; therefore, it's not surprising that all of the top jobs pay (C) a six-figure salary.

【譯】在考量薪資平均及職缺數量後,內科醫師在這次公布的排名中獲得首位(年薪平均180,000美金,2,064個職缺),律師也以平均年薪144,500、995個職缺數拿下第2,第3名則是研發經理,除了傳統高薪工作外,科技及工程業共佔了11個名額,這點倒不令人意外。從調查結果可以發現,「教育程度」、「符合市場需求的專業技能」和薪水高低息息相關,不難想像為什麼他們年薪能高達六位數。

However, a handsome salary doesn't always equate to job satisfaction. So, what makes employees happy in their jobs? Dr. Andrew, chief economist at Glassdoor, pointed out culture, values and trust between workers and senior management are the key drivers that lie behind it.

【譯】但是,優渥的薪水和工作滿意度無法畫上等號,倒底是什麼讓員工能在工作中獲得滿足?Glassdoor首席經濟學家Andrew Chamberlain指出,公司的價值、文化以及對高層的信任,才是真正的主因。

(註)口語詞彙補充:

1. C-suite level 公司高層

中文常說的公司高層主管,英文常用「C-level」來表示,因為這些高層的職位都以C(chief 首席)為開頭,我們常見的高層職位有:Chief Executive Officer(CEO首席執行長)、Chief Financial Officer(CFO首席財務長)、Chief Operating Officer(COO首席營運長)。

2. take the top spot 拿下首位

spot是位置,電影票房、選舉民調及任何數據中排名第一時,就像是佔據最高的那個位置,你也可以說take the number one spot。

The Revenant took the top spot at the international box office this weekend. 神鬼獵人稱霸本周末全球票房。

3. go hand-in-hand with 息息相關

「A go hand-in-hand with B」這個片語除了用在人與人之間,也可以用在兩件事,你可以想像A、B彼此牽連、關係密切。

A prosperous economy goes hand in hand with a stable society. 經濟的繁榮和安定的社會息息相關。
