Years of Experience
Five to nine years of work experience seem to result in median wages of $59K annually. When we consider tenure, a substantial portion of employees (48 percent) have been working for one to four years and make $51K per year on average.
When it comes to location, the highest average paycheck ($83K annually) can be spotted in Boca Raton, Fla.; Cleveland, Ohio (approximately $75K), New York, N.Y. (around $60K), and Hicksville, N.Y. (about $59K) are the next top-paying cities. Those interested in increasing earning potential should avoid the city of Westbury, N.Y. — at approximately $55K, salaries are some of the lowest in the country.
