VPs of Engineering represent the higher end of the earnings spectrum — in fact, median pay for this job is the highest at around $206K per year — though Director, Telecommunicationss, Quality Managers, and Business Development Managers also do fairly well at $110K, about $86K, and $79K, respectively. Manufacturing Production Planners make an average $51K, close to the bottom of the company pay scale.

Years of Experience

For those with one to four years of experience, median paychecks reach approximately $64K annually. Average pay is $77K per year for those with five to nine years of experience. The greater proportion of employees (40 percent) report 20 years or more of experience and bring home median pay of around $101K annually.


When it comes to location, the highest average paycheck (about $107K per year) can be spotted in Colorado Springs, Colo.; Huntsville, Ala. (approximately $100K), Dallas, Texas ($98K), and the company's headquarter city of San Jose, Calif. ($85K) are the next top-paying cities. Atlanta, Ga. ranks low on the pay scale — at about $65K, it is one of the lowest-paid cities. Within the firm, employees working in Alabama take home the most — around $99K annually on average.

Certifications and Degrees

Being a Certified Professional Engineer certainly has its perks — salaries approach $114K per year and far exceed the paychecks of those without certification. Earning a Cisco Certified Network Professional certification garners significant financial rewards of $108K annually on average. The highest-paying degree here is a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering (BSME); Sanmina-SCI Corporation awards $102K to these degree-holders.


The best-paying skill to have in this role appears to be Engineering Design; employees who claim this ability report median compensation of approximately $160K per year. Microsoft Excel is a popular skill among Sanmina-SCI Corporation workers, with slightly less than a fifth of those surveyed reporting using it on the job. Project Management, Microsoft Office, and Data Analysis round out the set of key employee skills.

Benefits and Perks

Only a third of survey participants enjoy paid vacation days and paid sick time — a rather disappointing finding. To plan for old age, a solid majority of workers maintain savings accounts through the company's 401(k) plan. A large number of employees have health insurance, and benefits for a large number of survey participants also include dental insurance. Additional benefits of working here are a company cell phone, life insurance, tuition reimbursement, and a casual working environment.
