Look no further! The new edition of the most comprehensive study ever undertaken of owners and top managers of U.S. architecture, consulting engineering, and environmental consulting firms–Zweig Group's 2016 Principals, Partners & Owners Survey of Architecture, Engineering, Planning & Environmental Consulting Firms–is now available. It's the one annual report for, by, and about principals and top managers in U.S. A/E firms, and it's the only source of inside information on the issues that principals are really concerned with. You may have read about the Principals, Partners & Owners Survey in ENR, Building Design & Construction, or many other publications. Now find out what they were talking about.
For the 2015 edition, principals from across the U.S. were questioned about their compensation, perks, privileges, ownership, work habits, professional backgrounds, personal life, and feelings about business practices, fellow principals, and industry issues. Their responses were then tabulated and analyzed.
The result is an eye-opening report covering the roles, responsibilities, risks, and rewards of being a principal. The Principals, Partners & Owners Survey has the lowdown on ownership, stock appreciation, buy/sell agreements, non-compete agreements, voting rights, and more.
Compensation: How much do principals earn? And who says you can't make any money in the design industry? You might be surprised at what the top earner in the survey brought home last year. The report will show you comparative data on salaries, bonuses, owner distributions, total compensation, and perks by firm type, region, size, growth rate, and firm profit, plus by the principal's title, percentage of ownership, age, and gender. Find where you stack up and set senior managers' salaries.
Perks: What's normal and what's excessive in the area of "perks" for principals? Get all the details on who gets what–including vacations, cellular phones, country club memberships, tax preparation, and company cars and auto allowances.
Roles & responsibilities: You work hard. But is everyone pulling his or her own weight? Find out how many hours principals typically work per week, their charge ability, time spent on different tasks, vacation taken (or not taken), and more. We also asked principals how they felt about their fellow owners and board of directors.
These are the issues that affect you. Tap into the collective insight of principals just like you from design and environmental firms coast to coast. What is their outlook for next year? Should principals be fired for non-performance? How likely is it that a principal will be fired, laid off, or have to take a significant pay cut? What type of leadership is most likely to make a firm successful? What are the biggest sources of conflict among principals? What are principals' biggest challenges?
