Engineering and Environmental Services Salary Survey

The Engineering and Environmental Services Salary Survey reports compensation data for 211 benchmark jobs related to providing advice, preparation of feasibility studies, preparation of preliminary and final plans and designs, provision of technical services during construction or installation phases, remediation process, inspection and evaluation of engineering projects including the control of environmental contamination.

The Engineering and Environmental Services Salary Survey documents market-based pay data for 17 executive and 194 non-management salary benchmark jobs from up to three databases: digitized public sources, ERI Assessor Series data, and direct participants. The following information is reported for each job title (salary data are shown in means, medians, and percentile cuts):

  • Annual Salary
  • Incentive/Variable Pay
  • Total Direct Annual Compensation
  • Job Description
  • Graph with a Trend Line and Data Points
  • Selected Characteristics of the Occupation (SCO)

Survey information is solicited through traditional mail, email, and online questionnaires. Each data submission is thoroughly screened by our team of experienced researchers prior to inclusion in a survey. No attempt is made to alter incumbent data as reported other than to normalize collected compensation amounts to a common date. Data collection begins October and ends March. Survey results are published annually in July, with an effective data date of March 31 of the given survey year.
