Here are the results of the 2017 GuildSomm Salary Survey! Thanks to everyone who participated. The numbers are based on a median calculations of over 1,000 online survey responses of GuildSomm members. We only publish categories that we think we have a sufficient data to be statistically significant, and the majority of responses are from people working in the United States. We currently include a breakdown by CMS certification level and hope to include results from other certification categories in the future as we increase our confidence in that data.
If you'd like to compare against previous years, here are the 2016, 2015, and 2014 results.
It would be super cool to make this dynamic so that you could cross-reference this; i.e if you wanted to know what a major market advanced makes if they work in education, at different time-in-industry, for example.
Maybe something for next year?
With about 1000 surveys, this starts to get a bit questionable if you break the categories down too finely. For now we will keep it broad as it is more likely to be accurate. We will look at it again next year and see if we feel good about any more detailed breakdown
