This demonstrates why so many people are looking to move to the San Francisco Bay Area, said Andrew Chamberlain, chief economist with Glassdoor.com.
Job satisfaction, work-life balance and hiring opportunity are unparalleled compared to anywhere else in the country in the Bay Area, Chamberlain added.The 2016 results demonstrate a huge improvement in the job hiring scores for both the San Jose and the San Francisco areas.
The Boston area and the Washington, D.C. metro areas rounded out the top 5.The survey determined that the median base salary in Santa Clara County is $112,000.
1 among the top 25 cities that were listed in the survey, every other metro area in the country is a distant second to the South Bay.Santa Clara County s base median salary is 27 percent higher than the San Francisco metro area and 32 percent higher than the Seattle region.The survey created a job score that was calculated from four equally weighted factors: hiring opportunity, cost of living, job satisfaction and work-life balance, said Allison Berry, a Glassdoor spokeswoman.
San Jose had the highest score for hiring opportunity, cost of living and job satisfaction, Berry said.
