Pay by Experience Level for Project Manager, Information Technology (IT)

Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.


Information Technology Project Managers with UNIX skills with more experience do not necessarily bring home bigger paychecks. In fact, experience in this field tends to impact compensation minimally. Relatively untried employees who have less than five years' experience make $72K, but folks with five to 10 years under their belts enjoy an appreciably larger median of $87K. Experienced professionals — those with 10 to 20 years in the field — see salaries in the six-figure territory, securing around $101K on average. Veterans who have surpassed the 20-year mark may make only slightly more than those who are navigating the mid-career stage; the more senior group reports median earnings of around $104K.
