For Instructional Design Consultants, experience in the field tends to play a major role in salary negotiations; pay increases with more experience. At career start, salaries are typically $60K, which grow to $77K after five to 10 years. After spending one to two decades on the job, pay usually hovers around $100K. Once they've gotten two decades of experience under their belts, Instructional Design Consultants encounter slower salary growth; at this point, they earn $109K annually. 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 2 percent, and senior people with more than 20 years under their belt fill out the remaining about one in five. Workers in this area tend to have one to nine years of experience.
