Years of Experience
Workers who have been with the company for more than one year but less than five can make approximately $63K per year on average. The largest slice of the Arizona Department of Transportation workforce (33 percent) has been working for 10-19 years and earns, on average, around $55K annually.
The highest average salaries go to Information Technology Project Managers, who bring in close to $71K per year, though Budget Analysts are not far behind at $56K annually.
Certifications and Degrees
Certified Professional Engineers have significantly higher pay than non-accredited workers at about $83K per year.
When it comes to skills, employees who report Project Management among their abilities seem to make the most, reporting a median income of $73K annually. A skill that is commonly seen around here is Budgeting; nearly one in three deem it necessary for work. Employees also tend to know Data Analysis, Financial Analysis, and Microsoft Excel.
Benefits and Perks
Only half of workers enjoy paid vacation days and paid sick time — a rather disappointing finding. A large number of survey participants report having health insurance, and most respondents report having dental coverage. A few more workplace perks are a defined benefit retirement plan and life insurance.
