Compensation Survey

Competition for talent in the technology, media and entertainment industry has never been fiercer. With the national unemployment rate dropping to 3.7%, a near 50-year low, it is crucial that employers hone their compensation strategies to attract new workers and retain talent. Employees working in content development and customer support earned big pay increases this year — as much as four times the national average.

Since 2002, C2HR’s Annual Compensation Surveys have uncovered market pressures and identified industry-specific benchmarking metrics that technology, media and entertainment companies use to ensure competitive pay strategies. C2HR has commissioned the Croner Company, a leading compensation research and consulting firm, to conduct its compensation surveys.

“These are the most comprehensive surveys of our industry available. Without them, we would be somewhat hamstrung for data unique to our industry or to correlate with data outside our industry.”
– Robert Scott, Director of Compensation, Cox Communications



In 2019, 55 employers submitted data reflecting budgets, base compensation figures, amenities and benefits for nearly 200,000 incumbents, including both exempt and nonexempt positions ranging from entry level to executives. The participants represent the majority of industry employers including the largest MSOs, all five national broadcast networks, all 20 of the most watched national cable networks, as well as digital content creators, regional cable and telecommunications operators and home security companies.
