Want a career with benefits? The finance and tech industries have the best employee benefits on average, a new study from review site Glassdoor found. The retail and food services sectors offer the worst benefits on average, the study revealed.
Despite the rise in "sharing economy" jobs — which often do not offer benefits — nearly 60 percent of job seekers rank benefits and perks among top considerations before accepting a job, according to an earlier study by Glassdoor, which conducts research on job-market trends.
For the study, Glassdoor looked at a sample of almost half a million benefits reviews posted by employees on its site over a 15-month period (June 2014 to September 2015). Reviewers rated benefits on a 1 to 5 star scale, with 5 stars representing high satisfaction.
