March 7, 2016
Salaries for manufacturing management continue their upward trajectory as pay increases were the norm rather than the exception. What manufacturers really want, though, is challenging work.
The results from the latest IndustryWeek Salary Survey have been collected, tallied and parsed, and the responses reflect the current state of manufacturing: reliably profitable, but not growing by leaps and bounds. Pay is holding steady and job satisfaction remains high, but economic challenges including a strong dollar, cheap imports and low oil prices are tempering optimism a bit from previous years.
  • The majority of respondents saw pay raises
  • 85% are "very satisfied" or "satisfied" with manufacturing as a career path
  • 73% are "very satisfied" or "satisfied" with their current job
  • Job stability matters most (21%) followed by challenging work (20%)
  • Base salaries exceed $114,000
  • Finding manufacturing talent is an ongoing concern
