Modern’s 5th Annual Salary Survey

Companies are increasingly rewarding hard work by key players in an effort to not only keep them around, but keep them happy.

Job satisfaction
When asked about their futures, 59% see themselves finishing their careers with their current employers, up 6% from last year. Among those who responded “yes,” salaries increased an average of 7.6%. Those who responded “no” saw average salaries remain level, and salaries for those who said they are “unsure” plummeted by an average of nearly 9%.

In 2009 and 2010, just 12% of respondents expressed they were “extremely satisfied,” as compared to 20% in 2011 and again in 2012. The percentage of those “somewhat satisfied” in 2010 rose from 35% to 37% and followed a small increase to 5% in the “not very satisfied” category. Today, just 1% are in that category, with another 1% “not at all satisfied” and just 23% “somewhat satisfied.”
