If you've ever found yourself suffering from burnout, the idea of a work-life balance can seem antiquated, like pensions or three-martini lunches. But it is possible. In its latest study, Glassdoor ranked the best jobs for achieving that elusive balance.
The study looks at employee reports on their jobs, across a minimum of 75 different companies. To be eligible, employee reviews must include "work-life balance." This can mean different things — like flexible work hours or generous vacation time — and may not always indicate shorter work weeks.
So while a 40-hour work week isn't guaranteed, the good news is that the full list represents a variety of fields and includes positions with generous median salaries (dev-ops engineer, anyone?). See the top 10 best jobs below, and check out Glassdoor's full report here. Who knows? You may find your next dream job on the list.
