Pay by agency Median | Average

Hover over chart for details. Agencies listed alphabetically. Scroll right to see more agencies.


Average and median are slightly different ways to evaluate pay. The median salary represents the total payments made to the employee at the midpoint of all salaries. The average pay is the amount each employee would make if total payroll was divided equally. The greater the gap between average and median, the more top-heavy an organization is. This sometimes is the result of payroll with higher numbers of specialized jobs that command higher pay.
