The Mondo Salary Guide also contains a salary key based on four factors to identifying where salary offers should fall within the given ranges of various roles in tech, digital marketing and creative. These four factors include:
- Geo-specificity: Supply and demand set the rate for the market and the data shows that location matters, with the highest salaries being found in New York City and San Francisco.
- Salaries are situational: Rates for all positions fluctuate based on business size, scope of the role, industry and whether the position is contract-based or full-time.
- New salary history laws affect rates: With many states and cities introducing laws that disallow the use of a job applicant’s salary history as a baseline for job offers, competitive rates are expected.
- In-demand roles equal higher salaries: Expect a fluctuating premium for in-demand or emerging roles within the market.
