Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
Though Data Analysts with Microsoft SQL Server skills can expect regular salary growth as they advance in their careers, experience does not seem to be a strong driver of pay increase. Starting out, salaries fall in the $51K range but grow to $61K after five to 10 years. Salary comes to $68K after 10 to 20 years. After two decades on the job, Data Analysts with Microsoft SQL Server skills see salary growth dwindle, averaging $69K. Experienced employees who have 10-20 years of experience make up 13 percent of the workforce; inexperienced individuals who have been working for less than one year comprise 6 percent, and senior people with more than 20 years under their belt fill out the remaining less than five percent. One to nine years of experience is standard for most employees in this area; most of respondents fit between this range.
