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 incomes. Survey participants with less than five years' experience report a median income of $56K, and earnings aren't much higher for respondents who have five to 10 years under their belts; respondents in the latter group report a median of just $61K. Contract Administration Supervisors bring in $68K after working for 10 to 20 years. Seasoned workers who boast more than two decades of relevant experience enjoy a median salary of $85K, which is substantially larger than the medians reported by folks with fewer years on their resumes.
