Information for the survey was gathered through a series of emails from Facilitiesnet.com, the online home of Building Operating Management and Facility Maintenance Decisions magazines. Data were submitted during August, September, and October 2017 and included 1,925 responses. Salary and raise information is reported as the median amount. The median indicates a middle point of data. Half who responded earned less than the median, while half earned more. Numbers that are extremely high or low do not distort it. Some charts may not add to 100 percent because of rounding.

In addition to the data presented below, Building Operating Management also surveyed FMs about the number of square feet per full-time equivalent employee (FTE) for maintenance and custodial workers, and acres per FTE for grounds workers. We’ve broken down the data by 10 building types and posted the national ranges and medians.
