Salary Resource Everyone Should Use


Salary transparency is an important resource for all employees, but it's become so taboo in the US that we rarely have conversations regarding this. 

Luckily the US gov. has done it for us to an extent... so sharing the resource.

Advocate for yourself and your peers. You're probably worth more than you're being paid. 

Cheers all

my grad school started a shared spreadsheet where undergrads shared their coop and full time $ figures. Glad to say very few listed unpaid slave gigs.

That's great. I've heard about some Cornell people doing this. 

More classes should honestly.

My class did this as well. We're also sharing our offer details with eachother as we seek employment after graduating.

If a job post asks applicants to state their expected salary when applying for the position, then give a range not a specific figure you're comfortable with. Answers like “Negotiable” might work, but they can also make you look evasive. For more information also see

Hey @Archinect - I'm curious, if the proposed New York State law comes into effect requiring job listings to post salary ranges, will that be implemented into the job boards on the site ?

There are several states that require salary ranges be posted with job advertisements.  

  • California
  • Colorado
  • Connecticut
  • Maryland
  • Nevada
  • Rhode Island
  • Washington

Thanks Chad - I was not aware of that.

No problem!

I think it could be a good idea to require any job postings on Archinect to have salary ranges regardless of state laws.

That's the only way that they'll learn I think. People have to report them.

I used to regularly shell out for the AIA Salary Survey to see how I compared.

Could someone help me understand. Why would I give this kind of transparency? I have an young smart BIM Coordinator that earns more then my Full Time CAD Architect. Because each of them has their own projects and depending on the projects the income is derived. Simple as that.
