One of the most unsurprising things in the just-released online 2011 editorial salary survey from Folio: shows that those magazine managers at U.S. consumer and b2b titles who work more than 50 hours a week get paid the most. For the most senior (editorial directors/editors-in-chief)...
Those who clocked out with an average work week of 40 hours earned $69,900; editors spending 41-49 hours per week in the office were paid $83,900; and respondents who put in 50 hours or more at the office earned $98,200.
For managing or senior editors, those who work 40 hours earned an average $52,200 while those who worked 50 hours plus earned $76,700, a 47% premium.
The salary gap between senior men and senior women widened at all levels. At the most senior, the average female executive got $77,600, the average male $99,300, a spread of 30%.
