Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
For many Los Angeles Software Engineers, more experience generally translates to higher pay. People who have worked for fewer than five years bring home $76K on average. Median compensation in the five-to-10 year group, however, is higher at approximately $88K. Those with 10 to 20 years of experience under their belts can expect their paychecks to flourish around the six-figure median of $103K. Folks who have racked up more than 20 years in the field report incomes that aren't that much higher than less experienced individuals' earnings; the veterans make just $117K on average.
