Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
Though Office Managers in Chicago can expect regular salary growth as they advance in their careers, experience does not seem to be a strong driver of pay increase. In five to 10 years time, starting salaries of $39K can reach $44K. Those with one to two decades of experience under their belt tend to see salaries around $49,859. Chicago Office Managers who stay in the field for several decades see their salaries grow less quickly after 20 years, with incomes eventually hovering around $55K. Experienced employees who have 10-20 years of experience make up 26 percent of the workforce; inexperienced individuals who have been working for less than one year comprise 1 percent, and senior people with more than 20 years under their belt fill out the remaining 11 percent. A majority of respondents report one to nine years of experience.
