Insider Tips

The typical average pay for GMs is $53,000 per year. While experience can have a substantial impact on earning potential for GMs, industry type tends to be the single most important factor. GMs who work in finance, insurance, or professional services generally earn the most in this field. Those who specialize in educational services or health care assistance typically earn the least on the GM salary spectrum.
