Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
Experience and pay tend to be weakly linked for Traffic Engineers with Engineering Design skills — those with more experience do not necessarily bring in higher earnings. Survey participants with less than five years' experience pocket $58K on average, but those with five to 10 years of experience enjoy a much bigger median of $77K. People with 10 to 20 years of experience make an average of about $84K in this role. More than 20 years of experience mean a somewhat bigger median paycheck of $86K, but it's not much more than what less experienced people make.
