Computer Network Analysts often transition into Senior Network Engineer positions, for which compensation tends to be much higher. On average, Senior Network Engineers earn $88K per year. Given that the median pay is $51K, it may be surprising to find that a Network System Administrator is the most common role for Computer Network Analysts to subsequently assume on their way up the ladder. Transitioning into an IT Network Engineer role — which pays $61K — is also typical for Computer Network Analysts, though less common by comparison.
