Shouldn't there be a field for years of experience?
Yeah, there are so many variables that the question isn't very useful. Why do we care about other people's salaries so much?
I care because I want to know if I'm getting a fair salary, also I'm curious on how much of a difference there is between different countries in the world.
Equality, that's why.
Yeah that's a good point, but I guess it's a bit late now, there are more than 500 entries already and it would be very difficult to ask everyone to re-fill the form again.
It would be great if the salary can be converted to the Big Mac index. Straight numbers are going to give the viewer enough context. Like one of the commenters here said he makes USD $32k per year in China, that might seem low, but convert it to how many big macs you can buy with that, you realize that's equivalent to making USD $56k in the US.
Oh man! I totally forgot about the Big Mac index, I should've thought about that before creating the form, now it's a bit difficult to ask the people to re-fill the form :(
Check the form, there are two questions asking for "Where do you live?" but I believe one should be "How many hours do you work?"
Oops! I fixed it now, please check it. Thanks for letting me know about that btw.
If you want to do this right, copy this format: http://motiongraphicdesigncensus.org/
One big issue I'm noticing is the currency people are using. Seeing a combination of £, $ etc but also some without any symbol attached.
I wonder if we should have multiple columns and calculate a single users salary first over the amount in their country (£ for example) but then say in $ too so that it's easier to draw parallels.
Yeah I've noticed that as well, I'm going to try filtering it manually... would really appreciate if anyone would help in filter the results.
All this salary talk is getting so dumbed down and silly.
I can see this is going to send many on a wild goose chase.
Location can matter, experience “can” matter, and so on.
However, this is all about positioning design and how you come on board.
A combination of circumstances, which include vertical (business industry) being addressed are very important.
Various verticals have more mental overhead in design.
If you have experience in more difficult verticals such as finance, health or government (say cyber security), your salary or fees you command may be higher depending on how you can come in and position yourself on the totem pole.
For poker players, table selection, table position and table image.
Your role in the design process is important.
If you’re the pixel janitor an agency keeps behind the curtain, your salary or fees will be quite low.
If you come in as a business analyst/ product designer and are working directly with key stakeholders, your fees or salary will be exponentially higher.
Yes, location and experience can and do matter, however, if we are just talking salaries, it’s not that simple.
I like that term. I'm going to use that as well.
Do you guys prefer using theTypeForm or shall I open the sheet for everyone to edit?
not sure if this is on TypeForm's end or Google's but, judging by the results, there seem to be a lot of double posts and some missing info. i typed my title and it didn't capture.
Yeah, there was a couple problems with TypeForm, the Google Form should be fine now.
I'll work on filtering the results tonight, if anyone would volunteer to help please let me know, you can find me on twitter @mahdif.
