What is the average office manager salary?

In general, an office manager salary is higher than that of other administrative office jobs. Depending on the level of responsibility given, an office manager can expect to earn substantially more than other general business professionals. In addition, the industry for which an office manager works, plus the level of experience and education can all be factors that influence the rate of pay for an office manager.

In 2010, office managers can expect to earn between $27,000 and $60,000 USD annually in many regions around the world. A brand new office manager with under two years of experience managing a small number of employees in one department will earn far less than a more experienced office manager in charge of an entire branch office of a corporation. In order to earn more, an office manager is wise to gain more experience, get more education and seek out higher paying job opportunities with large organizations.
