Our Fifth Annual Salary Survey

By Emily Tipping


Respondents in 2012 were slightly less likely to report that they were taking on a greater level of responsibility. While 68.7 percent saw their responsibilities increase in 2011, that number fell to 65.3 percent in 2012. Nearly one-third (32.5 percent) in 2012 said they had seen no change in their level of responsibility. (See Figure 13.)


The percentage of respondents who are satisfied with their jobs changed very little from 2011 to 2012. While 2011 saw a jump in the number who were very satisfied with their work, this year, that number only increased slightly. In 2011, 38.2 percent of respondents were very satisfied with their jobs. This year, 38.7 percent were very satisfied. Very few respondents reported being either unsatisfied (6.3 percent) or very unsatisfied (1.9 percent) with their work. (See Figure 14.)
