Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
For many but not all Publishing Managers, a key factor in salary decisions is experience; more experience generally yields higher pay. Starting out, salaries fall in the $49K range but grow to $67K after five to 10 years. After 10 to 20 years, compensation comes in at $77K. After 20 years in the field, Publishing Managers see their salaries growing more slowly, eventually averaging out to $79K. Experienced employees who have 10-20 years of experience make up 19 percent 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. One to nine years of experience is standard for most employees in this area; more than half of respondents fit between this range.
