The money is great, with a median base salary of $108,000, according to Glassdoor, but data scientist also tops the charts based on job satisfaction. And, according to LinkedIn, the career path readily leads to promotions.
Along with those benefits for people who work as data scientists, the “promising” label describes how the U.S. will need bunches of data scientists in 2019 and for years after. Glassdoor already has 27,630 data science job listings on its website nationwide.
