Lifestyle Trade-offs and Careers

AMA surveyed its members and customers to examine the choices employees make that may affect the jobs they take and their career paths. Jobs that demand a lot of risk, have greater responsibility, require long hours and extensive travel or have performance-based pay tend to lead to higher salaries. For instance, being responsible for a company’s profits or losses is generally recognized as one of the key factors in making it to the corner office. According to AMA’s survey, 39% of respondents said they would prefer to take on those responsibilities, whereas 46% said it would require higher pay.
