Things Are Looking Up

Our Ninth Annual Salary Survey

By Emily Tipping


Hard at Work

The percentage of respondents who are reporting that their level of responsibility is increasing year-over-year is starting to drop off. While 66.1 percent said they had a greater level of responsibility in 2014 than in 2013, only 59.8 percent said their level of responsibility increased in 2015. Looking ahead, fewer (57.9 percent) expect their level of responsibility to increase this year. (See Figure 11.)


As has been the case in every year we've reported on the salary survey, the vast majority of survey respondents are happy and satisfied with their work. Some 40.4 percent of respondents in 2016 said they were very satisfied, while 51.7 percent were satisfied. Only 6.2 percent said they were unsatisfied, and just 1.7 percent were very unsatisfied. (See Figure 12.)
