Whether you have one employee or thousands of employees in your architecture or engineering firm, you need a data-driven and defensible approach to be sure that your management salaries are fair and reasonable. 

When salaries get too bloated, the firm’s cash flow and profits suffer…and disruptive layoffs become the only fix.  When your managers are underpaid, that “do you have a minute?” meeting, where one of your top managers breaks the news that she is leaving, might be right around the corner.

Regular compensation benchmarking is the “ounce of prevention” that is way more cost effective than a “pound of cure”. But, using low-quality data often leads to low-quality decisions and that can cause irreparable damage to your firm. So, how do you get the highest quality benchmarking data available? 

Only the best benchmarking data is:

  • Vetted. Our data is gathered through an in-depth survey that is scrubbed against a series of error traps and reviewed from multiple angles for reasonableness.
  • Unbiased. Our data is provided by employers rather than employees.  That means a higher degree of confidence that the salaries are current and accurate…not over- or under-stated to support an ulterior motive.
  • Comprehensive. Our data is way more than just simple salaries.  This report digs deep into cash and non-cash components to give you the full picture.

PSMJ’s 2020 A/E Management Compensation Benchmark Survey Report packs all the information that you need for management compensation benchmarking in your A/E firm in an easy-to-read format.
