Pay by Experience Level for Civil Engineer

Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.


For many Sacramento Civil Engineers, experience and pay levels seem to be correlated; more years in the business generally lead to more money. Relatively untried employees who have less than five years' experience make $60K, but folks with five to 10 years under their belts enjoy an appreciably larger median of $80K. The average pay reported by folks with 10 to 20 years of experience is around $93K. Individuals who report more than two decades of experience seem to make only slightly more than folks in the 10-to-20 year range; the more senior group sees median earnings in the comparatively modest ballpark of $106K.
