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. Respondents with less than five years' experience take home $45K on average. In contrast, those who have been around for five to 10 years earn a noticeably higher average of $55K. After working for 10 to 20 years, Paralegal Managers make a median salary of $64K. Individuals who report more than two decades of experience seem to make only slightly more than folks in the 10-to-20 year range; the more senior group sees median earnings in the comparatively modest ballpark of $71K.
