Talk about pressure: Bob Iger, the head of Disney, is set to receive a $60 million cash bonus in 2018, but only if the company hits certain earnings targets, Bloomberg reported. Companies frequently dangle massive bonuses in front of CEOs in an attempt to get better results, but you don’t need to be a corporate bigwig to take home a generous annual bonus.

Though it’s a far cry from the millions Iger and his ilk stand to receive, some doctors, bankers, lawyers, and other professionals get bonus checks of $30,000 or more at the end of the year, according to new data from LinkedIn. The typical professional gets a bonus of $5,225 every year, or 7.6% of their median base salary. Overall, three-quarters of workers in the United States received a bonus in 2016, according to a survey of 500 companies by Accounting Principals.

If you’re looking for a career that rewards workers with a big pile of cash at the end of the year, check out these 10 jobs, which pay the highest annual cash bonus, according to LinkedIn. (List excludes C-suite positions.)
