Annual polling reveals trends in the Media Industry, including a consistent gender gap

NEW YORK, Dec. 6, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Cynopsis, the premier daily publication for television and media executives, revealed the results of its 2019-2020 Salary Survey. The full study can be viewed on Cynopsis' dedicated Salary Survey page and Jobs site.

"At a time when transparency is more highly valued than ever, this year's salary survey outlines the shifting terrain of media today. Because of our trusted relationship with our readers, we are able to deliver details of their compensation and more importantly, how our community feels about their professional lives, so that we can all clearly see what's working, and what we need to improve," said Cynopsis Publisher Robbie Caploe.

Cynopsis solicited its robust audience in the summer of 2019, inviting executives to participate in the annual Salary Survey, which received more than 2,800 unique responses.

The study examined eight major factors - both personal traits, such as gender, and characteristics of employers, such as company size - that contribute to compensation across six distinct job levels, from entry level to CEO.

A few key findings:

  • The gender gap remains prevalent across all departments
  • Benefits are becoming more extensive & varied as companies compete to attract and retain talent
  • There's a notable decline in salary satisfaction across all workers

One of the more disheartening facts to come out of the report was the gender gap. On average, males continue to out-earn their female counterparts by 27%, translating to a difference of $31,200. From the 2018 Cynopsis Salary Survey study, this represents a 10% rise in the gender gap. This disparity is prevalent across all titles and departments in the study.
