Congratulations, Audit Managers, You Made Glassdoor’s 25 Best Jobs List

We're used to "accountant" making stupid lists from Yahoo on the world's best careers but what about this Glassdoor list of the 25 best jobs that came out today?

Glassdoor explains the formula:

The Glassdoor Job Score is determined using three key factors – earning potential based on average annual base salary, career opportunities rating and number of job openings. The jobs that made this list stand out across all three categories.

Coming in at #18, Audit Managers don't do as well on the list as Physician Assistant or HR Manager but they rank none-the-less:

  1. Audit Manager – Glassdoor Job Score: 4.3
  • Number of Job Openings: 4,585
  • Average Base Salary: $69,271
  • Career Opportunities Rating: 3.9

Do we agree with this ranking? Should "Audit Manager" appear on the list at all? Is it really the best? So many questions…
