Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
For many but not all Publishing Managers, experience and pay levels seem to be correlated; more years in the business generally lead to more money. Starting out, salaries fall in the $49K range but grow to $67K after five to 10 years. After spending one to two decades on the job, pay usually hovers around $77K. After two decades on the job, Publishing Managers see salary growth dwindle, averaging $79K. Experienced employees who have 10-20 years of experience make up around one in five of the workforce; inexperienced individuals who have been working for less than one year comprise 2 percent, and senior people with more than 20 years under their belt fill out the remaining about a third. Workers in this area tend to have one to nine years of experience.
