Years of Experience
Five to nine years of work experience seem to result in median wages of approximately $61K per year. Overall, the greater share of University of Chicago folks have one to four years of experience and earn an average $46K annually.
Nearing the top of the pay scale are Otolaryngologists, Professors, Business Managers, and Assistant Directors of Non-Profit Organizations; while the first receives the highest median pay at around $191K per year, the other salaries come in at about $118K, $60K, and $60K, respectively. Financial compensation for Research Associates is rather low — on average only about $46K — relative to the rest of the company.
Certifications and Degrees
Those lacking certification bring in much lower salaries than American Board of Otolaryngology Members, who make $190K annually. Bigger paychecks are awarded to Licensed Lawyers with credentials; these people earn approximately $107K per year on average. The highest-paying degree here is a Medical Doctor (MD), Otolaryngology; University of Chicago awards around $187K to these degree-holders.
In this role, the best-paying skill appears to be Operations Management; individuals who claim it among their capabilities enjoy a higher median salary of $75K annually. Project Management also popped up often in the survey as an important skill; just under a fifth of employees surveyed report using it at work. Other top skills include Data Analysis, Budget Management, and Microsoft Excel.
Benefits and Perks
When it comes to employee benefits, University of Chicago has room for improvement — only two in five respondents are paid for vacation and sick time. Employees looking to save up for old age can choose from several options including a 401(k) plan and a 403(b) plan. Almost all employees can count on health insurance, and a large number of respondents have dental coverage as a benefit. The company also dishes out perks such as life insurance, tuition reimbursement, and flexible hours.
