Salary Survey Extra is a series of dispatches that give added insight into the findings of both our annual Salary Survey and our smaller Salary Survey PLUS polls. These posts contain previously unpublished Salary Survey data.

What does the salary structure look like where you work?One week ago in this space, we examined the correlation between organizational standing and salary among U.S. networking professionals. Generally speaking, we saw that certain job roles are compensated more generously than others, and that salary isn’t necessarily highest at the top of the org chart.

So what does the picture look like outside the United States? Compensation amounts are different, of course, but there are a number of similarities. Here’s what the over all picture looks like:

Employment LevelPercentage of All Respondents at This LevelAverage Annual SalaryEmployment LevelPercentage of All Respondents at This LevelAverage Annual Salary
Employee27.4 percent$22,240Senior Manager3.2 percent$42,380
Specialist28.5 percent$29,372Director1.3 percent$31,980
Senior Specialist28.7 percent$41,868Executive3.3 percent$23,740
Manager7.6 percent$32,690

Average annual salary calculated from base salary in 2016.

It seems clear that “executive,” generally understood to refer to the top boss at most U.S. firms, doesn’t necessarily carry the same meaning outside the United States. It’s also possible, of course, that, to some extent, executive-level compensation is drawn from other sources than salary.

As was also the trend among U.S. employers, there’s a big jump in salary from being an employee or specialist to taking a job at the senior specialist level. Unlike in the United States, however, there aren’t nearly as many workers at the senior specialist level — overall employment is much more evenly distributed over the lower rungs on the ladder.

  1. Thanks for sharing salary information. Managing an IT firm is a hard task but I’m often surprise that employers don’t compensate managers well.
