2023 Facility Management Salaries And Compensation 

Pay scales for 9 titles broken down by geography, building type, budget, facility size, experience, and much more

Facility departments all across the United States are struggling to fill open positions. Whether its an entry-level maintenance worker or a six-figure C-suite leader, there are too many vacancies and not enough candidates.

A tight labor market often leads to competition for employees and therefore to higher pay. The “Facility Management Salaries And Compensation” e-book provides a range of industry benchmarks for essential positions within facility departments.

This ebook can help facility executives attract and retain top talent by seeing how their salary and compensation offerings match up to others in the industry.

This research breaks down survey responses by nine titles:

• Director of Engineering, Operations and Maintenance

• Director or Vice President of Facilities

• Engineer

• Facilities Coordinator/Supervisor

• Facility Manager

• Maintenance Supervisor

• Operations/Plant Manager

• Property Manager

• Superintendent of Buildings And Grounds


Within each title, the data is broken down further by eight sub-categories:

• Education Level

• Budget

• Geography

• Building Type

• Square Footage

• Years of Experience

• Certifications

• Gender

By providing multiple perspectives on compensation, the report enables facility managers to more accurately gauge whether the salaries and bonuses they offer are competitive in the labor market.

The e-book provides both average and median numbers for each of these sub-categories. Having industry benchmarks for both averages and medians can help facility managers go to top management and justify current salaries, make the case for an increase in pay, or show employees that they already offer competitive compensation.

Because many salaries fall outside the median range, the report also lists the high and low salaries submitted by respondents. This data set complements median and average salaries. Understanding high and low salaries for comparable titles helps facility managers understand where an individual salary fits into the wider picture of compensation. With this information, facility managers can determine whether a salary is outside the industry wide bounds, is at the very high or low end of the range, or is well within that range.

This report uses salary data from 1,955 facility management personnel who completed a survey in spring 2023.
