The 2011 Project Manager Salary Survey is now available for download!
Considering the current state of the economy, we were very eager to see the results of 2011’s salary survey. We received over 1700 responses from around the world. While over half of the responses were from the United States, we also received responses from 86 other countries and found that no matter where a project manager resides, they are very well paid.
In the United States, project managers’ salaries are mostly impacted by 5 factors: years of experience, certification, education, industry, and regional wage rates. As we have found in previous years, women, even with the same years of experience, title and education, have lower salaries than men. Our results show that women make approximately $6,100 less per year than males.
As expected, project managers with more experience have a higher salary than project managers with less experience. Along the same lines, project managers with lower level titles, such as “Project Manager” tend to earn less than those with a more senior title, such as “Senior Manager”. No matter the factors taken into consideration, it pays to work in the IT services, medical industries, or the federal government. Employees in these industries tend to be paid significantly more than employees in other industries.
