Based on data from hundreds of AEC firms across the U.S., this tool is the new standard for firm leaders and human resources directors looking to benchmark their staff's base compensation, bonus as a percentage of base pay, total compensation, hours worked and overtime eligibility, and more!
The Benchmarking Tool will help you:
- Compare your staff's compensation to those in firms just like your own
- Find out what the normal compensation range is for every type and level of position in an AEC firm
- See how salaries change as firms grow in size and help you prepare for your own firm's future
- Evaluate total compensation on a state-by-state and regional basis
- If you have offices in more than one state, see where employees are earning the most — and the least

Technical staff data are broken into five levels — entry-level, project engineer, project manager, department head, and principal.
The tool also shows salaries and bonus for management positions — such as presidents, CEOs, CFOs, branch managers, and others — as well as IT, marketing, and administrative staff. Average years of experience, hours worked in a week and whether overtime is paid to a position are included for all job titles.
