“This year’s salary survey exposed, once again, an industry that’s shifting and morphing the definition of what it means to be working in media today,” said Roberta Caploe, Cynopsis Media’s Publisher.

NEW YORK

Cynopsis, the premier daily publication for television and media executives, revealed the results of its 2017 Salary Survey. The full study can be viewed on Cynopsis Media’s dedicated Salary Survey page.

Cynopsis Media solicited its robust and loyal community in October 2017, inviting executives to participate in the first-ever annual Cynopsis Salary Survey. We received 2,400 unique responses.

The study examined eight major factors—both personal traits, such as gender, and characteristics of employers, such as company size—that contribute to compensation across six distinct job levels—from entry level to CEO.

“This year’s salary survey exposed, once again, an industry that’s shifting and morphing the definition of what it means to be working in media today. Cynopsis’ credibility and leadership position means that our community trusts us enough to share their most personal work information, so that we can deliver a realistic portrait of the job market,” said Roberta Caploe, Cynopsis Media’s Publisher.

A few key findings:

  •     The gender gap is closing a bit, though women consistently make less than men (27K less, in fact, vs. 32K in 2016)
  •     Highest salaries for most functions are in the Northeast and West in the U.S., but legal and marketing positions pay better in the West than anywhere else
  •     Average bonuses clock out at $13, 600.
