    Generally it's not an especially lucrative career but there's potential to make a lot of money.

    True unless you work in a private company within a hot area.. Ala Google Brain.

    Some top universities pay well though.

    Academic research usually isn't well paid. Plus there's the pain of having to submit research proposals to obtain the grant to finance the research. Expected to have a phd.

    Industrial research is more constrained, and performance based, but can be far more lucrative. The researches that stumbled upon the interesting side effects of Sildenafil (Viagra) I'm sure were very well compensated for their accidental discovery
