Since ASCE charges several hundred bucks for their Salary Survey, thought we would do one here, for free.. This may need some refinement and will add one for all disciplines, But please participate!

I can participate in the "Water Resources" salary survey. When do you think that one will be up? :rolleyes:

Are you going to adjust the numbers for us poor geotechnical engineers?

As a geotech, I second that. My starting salary in 2005 as an EIT was under 40K and 4 years later I still didn't break 50K. I knew people in the same boat. 

Years make a difference. For example, I noticed that at 12:24am PST only one member had voted but answered each one of the options. He was making more than 55K as a 0-2 year EIT and more than 100K as a 10-14 year PE. I would think that starting salaries in 2002 are not comparable to starting salaries in 2016. Once more people vote, we won't know to how many years ago the salaries correspond. 

Also, location makes a difference. What you get in NY is not what you'll get in MS. 

Food for thought.

And the thought behind this is what you make today not to vote in each category- guess I will clarify

How low?

I would just add a less than symbol in front of $55k for #2, and in front of $60k for #3. That would provide me with an option to vote on those two lol.

So, for #s 1 - 5, do we pick only the # we currently fall under and only answer one of the 5, or do you want us to answer the lower numbers with the salary we made when we were in that #?  Does that make sense?  So, if I am, say a #4 or #5 today, do you want me to answer #2 with the salary I made when I was a #2?

Got it thanks.

Man,,,,, the recession really f'ed me up hard with 4-5 years of no pay raises.  But pay raises ("merit increases") have been reinstated and I am finally in the 6 figs now.  :)

I think the poll is more useful for if the number is total monetary (salary + bonus) as opposed to just salary.

I won't stop you from putting that # in there (when I get around to making the str one). But not all industries have a consistent bonus year in year out..

So is it OK that I voted on the 10-14 years since its the closest and even if I dont have a PE yet?  I have been working for at least 18 yrs.

I'll throw my number in when I get home. Once I get my PE, I'LL update it because I should be getting a raise.
