Zweig Group's 2017 Principals, Partners & Owners Survey of Architecture, Engineering, Planning & Environmental Consulting Firms is a comprehensive study of owners and top managers of U.S. architecture, consulting engineering, and environmental consulting firms. This eye-opening report covers ownership, stock appreciation, buy/sell agreements, non-compete agreements, voting rights, roles, responsibilities, perks, compensation, and more.

The 2017 Principals, Partners, and Owners Survey has data on the following:
  • Principal compensation, benefits, and perks
  • Common issues and challenges related to running an A/E/P or environmental consulting firm
  • Qualifications, job requirements, and demographics of principals, partners, & owners in the industry
  • Employment agreements, non-competes, and stock buyback provisions
  • How principals manage time and break down the work day
Zweig Group's 2017 Principals, Partners & Owners Survey of Architecture, Engineering, Planning & Environmental Consulting Firms is 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. 

For the 2017 edition, principals from across the U.S. in the architecture, engineering, planning and environmental consulting industry, 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.

Compensation: The report has 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. 

Perks: What's normal and what's excessive in the area of "perks" for principals? Get statistics on every kind of perk–including vacations, cellular phones, country club memberships, tax preparation, and auto allowances.

Roles & responsibilities: Data on how many hours principals typically work per week, their chargeability, 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.
