Experience is important when determining pay for Design Engineering Managers. Salary growth can be slow for Design Engineering Managers who are just starting out. During their first decade on the job, pay typically only increases from $80K to $100K. After 10 to 20 years, workers enjoy a boost in pay; earnings increase to six figures, hovering around $107K. Even after two decades, Design Engineering Managers continue to experience substantial salary development and pay is estimated at $122K. Design Engineering Managers with 10 to 20 years of experience are most common in the field, followed by those with more than 20 years and one to 10 years. Workers who have been working for one to 10 years are hardest to find.
