Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
For Radio Frequency (RF) Engineers, experience is not a major factor in determining pay, and incremental pay growth is standard. New salaries start at $69K and reach $84K in five to 10 years. Those with one to two decades of experience under their belt tend to see salaries around $100K. After two decades on the job, Radio Frequency (RF) Engineers see salary growth dwindle, averaging $103K. 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 6 percent, and senior people with more than 20 years under their belt fill out the remaining less than 10. In this field, workers tend to have anywhere from one to nine years of experience—of those surveyed, more than half land within this range.
