Survey participants with five to 10 years under their belts see an only a slightly bigger average of $76K. Experienced professionals who have spent one to two decades on the job can score lucrative paychecks that average out to $116K. Seasoned workers who boast more than two decades of relevant experience enjoy a median salary of $161K, which is substantially larger than the medians reported by folks with fewer years on their resumes.
