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.
As I recall when filling out this survey, I don't believe there was a differentiation between before tax/after taxes. Was there? $62,000/year take home after taxes is about $47,000. Just thought it would be important to determine if people are answering this survey using gross or net pay.
All earnings should be pre-tax
