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

Respondents with less than five years' experience take home $47K on average. In contrast, those who have been around for five to 10 years earn a noticeably higher average of $68K. Computer Programmers with COBOL skills bring in $81K after working for 10 to 20 years. People who have worked for more than 20 years report a median income of $92K, which is barely higher than the median for folks with 10 to 20 years of experience.
