Asking for my husband…

We both think he’s underpaid.

Masters degree in architectural engineering (focus on mechanical)

Works on large job sites doing commissioning and project management as a “commissioning engineer” (large in sq footage and high profile jobs for a large Midwest city)

8 YOE on large projects in the Midwest

He’s making 75K.

Not in Engineering but $75k feels severely underpaid given a masters degree and 8YOE. Am sure if your husband actively looks around he can find a huge raise.

I'm not in architectural engineering, but I would say with 8 YOE he should be paid drastically more.

I think that field doesn’t pay well. My brother in law is an architect and only makes about $55k.

Definitely underpaid, I work in the O&G sector in Operations and now a EHS role. I know the engineers with just 1-2years is at 100k. I think project management and 8 YOE should get him around at least closer to 150k plus he has a masters too. Have you guys try to do some research on salary in your area?
