And the (Salary) Survey Says...

It is well known that AUGI members are always willing to share information with their fellow members. Often this peer-to-peer sharing comes in the form of tips for making the most of the software you use, workarounds to employ until the next software releases solve product limitations, and other sage advice. Recently, more than 4,200 AUGI members shared something more—and all AUGI members will benefit.

The results of the 15th Annual AUGI Salary Survey are in! Created, organized, and analyzed by long-time AUGI volunteer and member of the Board of Directors, Melanie Perry, the AUGI Salary Survey presents interesting cuts of data which go far beyond what you earned last year.

Insights into job satisfaction, what industries are experiencing heavy workloads and what industries could be a little busier, what percentage of respondents got a raise, what percentage didn’t, and a whole lot more are included in this year’s survey.

Thank you to the AUGI members who participated!
