Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
For Direct Marketing Managers, experience seems to be a major factor in determining pay. At career start, salaries are typically $51K, which grows to $70K after five to 10 years. Those who spend a decent amount of time in this profession—one to two decades—usually make about $83K. After two decades on the job, Direct Marketing Managers see salary growth dwindle, averaging $84K. Experienced employees who have 10-20 years of experience make up 27 percent of the workforce; inexperienced individuals who have been working for less than one year comprise less than five, and senior people with more than 20 years under their belt fill out the remaining 17 percent. In this field, workers tend to have anywhere from one to nine years of experience—of those surveyed, more than half land within this range.
