The 2019 Engineering Firm Salary Surveys are the most up-to-date and comprehensive compensation survey reports for engineering firms operating in each region of the U.S. Based on data from a broad sampling of engineering firms in the region reporting salaries for all positions, these reports are the new standard for firm leaders and human resources directors looking to benchmark their staff's compensation against their peers.

Technical staff data are broken into five levels—entry-level, project engineer, project manager, department head, and principal. The report also shows salaries for management positions—such as presidents, CEOs, CFOs, branch managers, and others—as well as IT, marketing, and administrative staff. Descriptions and average years of experience are included for all titles in the survey. Data are clearly broken out by state or region and firm size so you can make comparisons between your firm and others just like it.
Trend data is included so you can see how salaries for every type of position has changed over the years.
