Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
For many Contracts Managers with Contract Negotiation skills, experience and pay levels seem to be correlated; more years in the business generally lead to more money. People who have worked for fewer than five years bring home $72K on average. Median compensation in the five-to-10 year group, however, is higher at approximately $85K. Contracts Managers with Contract Negotiation skills who work for 10 to 20 years in their occupation tend to earn about $94K. Seasoned workers who boast more than two decades of relevant experience enjoy a median salary of $112K, which is substantially larger than the medians reported by folks with fewer years on their resumes.
