Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
Experience and income seem to be closely related; in general, the survey respondents who had worked for more years reported higher incomes. Average salaries for inexperienced employees average out to around $41K, but folks who have five to 10 years of experience earn a higher median of $61K. The average pay reported by folks with 10 to 20 years of experience is around $64K. Six-figure salaries aren't unusual for professionals who have achieved more than 20 years of experience; median compensation for this group sits in the range of $250K.
