Survey Results: Salary

How much money do you make? It's a personal question, but we asked it, and most respondents answered. Here's the salary breakdown:

  • 3.2% of respondents make less than $30,000.
  • 24.8% make $30,000-$50,000.
  • 13.9% make $50,000-$60,000.
  • 7.7% make $60,000-$70,000.
  • 8.3% make $70,000-$80,000.
  • 11.8% make $80,000-$100,000.
  • 14.7% make $100,000-$150,000.
  • 8.3% make $150,000-$200,000.
  • 7.4% make more than $250,000.
Publishers Weekly conducts its own salary survey every year; here are their 2008 results. hey found that the average man working in publishing made $103,822 in 2007, while the average woman made $64,742. PW notes that the highest jobs are in management, where more men work.

However, in our survey, 35.9% of the people making over $100,000 a year work in editorial.

When we asked the over $100,000 group what they should be making, 25% thought that their salary was about right. "M
oney is always tight, but my compensation seems fair," wrote one respondent who makes $150,000-$200,000. "It's a loaded question, but I'm well compensated by publishing standards," wrote another respondent. And an editor making between $150,000 and $200,000 thought an "aggravation bonus" was in order.

At sites like, employees can anonymously report their salaries, as well as review their companies. Here are the results for Random House, McGraw-Hill, Scholastic, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, Rodale, HarperCollins, and Wiley. The site is free, but to see the reviews or numbers, you have to (anonymously) post.

The numbers are not that helpful to link to as of yet because so few people have provided their salary information.
