These Are The Top 25 Jobs for Work/Life Balance

According to Bloomberg, These are a list of jobs that offer great work-life balance and some that don’t. The eight-hour day, 40-hour week seems like a thing of the past. Work hours have been scaled back to 6-hour days in Sweden as firms “have found that the result is more productivity and better morale.”

According to a new survey from career website Glassdoor, work-life balance has decreased as of late,

“Maintaining a healthy work-life balance can be tough in today’s work environment, but some jobs allow for more flexibility than others. In fact, work-life balance has decreased in recent years, as employees have reported an average work-life balance satisfaction rating of 3.5 in 2009, 3.4 in 2012, and 3.2 thus far in 2015* (Ratings based on a 5-point scale: 1.0=very dissatisfied, 3.0=OK, 5.0=very satisfied). So where do you turn to get a job that won’t leave you working 24/7?”

Glassdoor looked at company reviews to find out the positions where work-life balance was considered a pro. Reviewers can also rate this from 1-5. To make Glassdoor’s list, the job title needed to have been rated by at least 75 people with that position at two or more companies and 15% of the reviews citing work-life balance as a pro.

You will notice from Bloomberg’s graphs that they all rank reasonably high. However, some of them have better salaries than others. Data scientists make $115,000 annually while lab assistants and substitute teachers make less than a quarter  of that: $27,550 and $24,380 respectively.
