Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
Experience and pay tend to be weakly linked for IT Network Engineers with Network Architecture / Design skills — those with more experience do not necessarily bring in higher earnings. Relatively untried employees who have less than five years' experience make $59K, but folks with five to 10 years under their belts enjoy an appreciably larger median of $71K. On average, IT Network Engineers with Network Architecture / Design skills make $80K following one to two decades on the job. Individuals who have achieved more than 20 years of experience don't seem to earn much more than people who have 10 to 20 years under their belts; the more senior group reports an average income of $84K.
