Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
Experience seems to be a major factor in determining the incomes of Instructional Design Consultants. Those who have worked for fewer than five years take home a median salary of $60K, and workers with five to 10 years of experience earn a higher $76K on average. Instructional Design Consultants claiming one to two decades of experience make an estimated median of $97K. Instructional Design Consultants who have stuck around for more than two decades see earnings that are only slightly higher than those of folks who have worked for 10 to 20 years; the more senior group makes around $109K on average. One to nine years of experience is standard for most employees in this area; a little over a half of respondents fit between this range. Experienced employees who have 10-20 years of experience make up nearly one in four of the workforce; inexperienced individuals who have been working for less than one year comprise less than two percent, and senior people with more than 20 years under their belt fill out the remaining nearly one-fifth.
