CAD/Design/Architecture/Engineering Salary Survey

AUGI is currently running the 2008 Annual Salary Survey!

Which means that your peers need YOU to log in and report your views. We call this a survey because that's precisely what we're doing. We're collecting information from the members to compile and share back with the members. What a great idea! But, unfortunately, only about 10% of our membership takes part each year, which limits the amount of meaningful data that I've got to work with. Remember, every little bit helps. Speak for your industry!

Normally we do this survey in the fall and publish the results in the first issue of the following year. While each company may be slightly different, many will hand out raises and bonuses at the end of the year. So, in order that you can have as many resources as possible at your disposal before then, we're running this survey in June, so that it can be published in the fall.

Of course, if you have any concerns about participating in this anonymous survey or have questions about any of it, be sure to check out the updated FAQ. And the 'F' in FAQ, REALLY means FREQUENTLY. I receive emails about this survey all year round, and if folks would take the time to read the Frequently Asked Questions document, they wouldn't need to waste their time contacting me.

I did get more constructive suggestions than ever last year and, as usual, I have made changes based on the well thought out requests from our members who are interested in helping me improve what we're offering.
Many "Thanks" to those folks who truly appreciate all of my volunteer time on this and tell me about how our survey has benefited you. That's what AUGI is all about, users helping users.

Check out the results from the 2007 Survey which include: the Salary Survey article and charts from AUGIWorld Magazine, the FAQ document (which includes a listing of all questions asked on the survey, frequently asked questions and other salary sites), a Podcast (mp3 containing survey observations and tips on asking for a raise), a spreadsheet containing various comparisons and rankings between each discipline/industry as well as individual downloads providing more information on each industry/field by themselves.

Melanie, it's hand-written spam. I got a bunch from this guy on my blog too. It's gone now.

It's not anonymous if you have to log in.

You can track duplicate responses in other ways.

Thanks, Steve. I deleted it so I'm no longer linking back to his site then.

"Anonymous" (haven't you got a name?'), if you think I'm a liar, fine, I don't know you, you don't know me... but, since you didn't program the site, then you cannot honestly state that it is NOT anonymous.

It *needs* to be tracked THAT a user has taken the survey (although the records of the survey results are separate). Period. I don't care about duplicate responses as much as I care that we don't have a free for all with people skewing the findings as much as they want. One person could wreak A LOT of havoc without once exactly duplicating his/her entry if they're allowed to do it anonymously.
