Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
In general, experience and pay appear to be strongly linked; those with more experience usually bring in higher salaries. New salaries start at $53K and reach $64K in five to 10 years. Earnings total $77K after one to two decades. As Clinical Applications Specialists reach 20 years on the job, salary increases slow down a bit, averaging $83K. Experienced employees who have 10-20 years of experience make up about one-fourth of the workforce; inexperienced individuals who have been working for less than one year comprise 5 percent, and senior people with more than 20 years under their belt fill out the remaining 6 percent. Age distribution in this workforce is concentrated between one and nine years of experience; a majority of respondents fall in this range.
