The Top 5 Most Overrated Jobs of 2011

What makes a job ‘overrated’? Although these jobs make over $100,000 a year, the level of stress and lack of work-family balance may outweigh the money. When you speak to a mail carrier or garbage collector they work 7.5 hour days and completely turn their job off when they get home. The same cannot be said for any of these top 5 jobs.

1. Senior Corporate Executive ($161K avg. income)
2. Surgeon ($365K avg. income)
3. Physician ($192K avg. income)
4. Psychiatrist ($160K avg. income)
5. Airline Pilot ($106K avg. income)
