SBE Survey Tracks 2017 Compensation
From April 1 to May 15, 2017, the Society of Broadcast Engineers conducted its second annual compensation survey to determine salary levels and benefits among broadcast and media technology engineers.
The complete results of the survey are available at no charge to SBE members as a benefit of membership. SBE members can login to view and download the report here.
The survey included 23 questions that gathered information about job titles, broadcast market size and compensation in dollars and offered benefits. SBE membership was not required to take the survey. About the survey, SBE President Jerry Massey said: “The outstanding response to the 2017 survey was comparable to 2016. The SBE Compensation Survey broadly encompasses radio, TV and other media rather than focusing on only one segment.”
While all responses remained anonymous, demographic data collected included market size, job category/title, age, years working in broadcasting, salary, benefits received and any certification held.
The data is split into radio or TV results, with greater detail on job category and market size.
Massey added: “The survey again shows that individuals who hold SBE Certification on average earn a higher salary than those who do not hold SBE Certification. This is a trend we have seen in other surveys, and continues to show true.”
