Former FAMU graduates bring in $50K on average.
More often than not, FAMU grads continue living in Tallahassee, Fla. (more than a third of former students to be exact) even though the average salary here takes last place on the pay scale ($51K). On the flipside, FAMU grads seeking above-average pay can find soaring salaries in Atlanta, Ga. where median pay is $71K.
FAMU grads who hold a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (EE) can expect to fare better than most fellow alumni, earning an average about $68K per year. Those with a Bachelor of Science in Bachelor of Science (BS / BSc) face salaries on the lower end, coming in at an average around $58K per year.
FAMU grads are usually competent in Customer Service, and just under a third of alumni continue practicing this skill in their career. For former Rattlers, proficiency in Project Management warrants a paycheck that is 60 percent more than other alumni salaries. Proficiency in Office Administration, Project Management, and Microsoft Office command top-of-the-line rewards as well.
Benefits and Perks
A number of grads are rewarded with paid time off, and a large number of grads report compensation for sick days and vacation time. A fair number of respondents participate in a 401(k) program. For this school, a strong majority of survey participants are the recipients of health benefits, and the larger part of survey participants pick up dental plans, too. Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University alumni are rewarded with additional benefits, such as tuition reimbursement, a casual working environment, a company-subsidized cell phone, and life insurance.
Texas a & M University grads bring in salaries of around approximately $51K, making them the most similar to FAMU alumni in terms of earnings. The University of West Florida, Georgia Southern University, and Lamar University are also similar to FAMU.
