The Fahrenheit Mid-Atlantic Total Compensation Survey


Richmond, VA – October 6, 2015 – The Fahrenheit Group is conducting the Mid-Atlantic Total Compensation Survey for Small and Middle Market Companies. Now in its 25th year, the survey provides the most comprehensive information regarding competitive market-based salary and incentive data, salary adjustments, cash and equity incentive plans for executives and technical professionals, and trends in human resource practices and employee benefit plans.

Small and middle market firms are invited to participate by completing the survey questionnaire no later than October 23, 2015. Participate now by accessing the survey here.

Participating companies receive a free copy of the summary results in November. Non-participants may purchase the results for $400.

The survey is dedicated to serving the needs of small-to-medium size companies throughout the Mid-Atlantic region, and with a history of serving technology companies; the scope will now be broader across all industry segments. The survey provides competitive salary and incentive bonus rates for 50 benchmark jobs, ranging from the Chief Executive Officer to Project Manager, Programmer Analyst, Financial Analyst, Network Engineer, Staff Accountant, Recruiter and Technical Support Specialist

“With Fahrenheit’s sphere of clients and contacts, we look forward to including a broad spectrum of industries and seeing a substantial increase in the number of participating companies this year. This survey is unique in that it is the only one of its kind with the essential compensation, benefits and HR practices information from small-to-medium size companies,” said Steve Rosenthal, Director of Compensation Practice for FahrenheitHR. “Early indicators show more companies plan on slightly increasing their salary budgets for the upcoming year, although they are expected to remain at relatively lower levels than in the previous decade. The challenge to recruit and retain talent in this environment remains high.”

For the 2015 – 2016 survey, the summary report provides salary and incentive data for 50 benchmark jobs. In addition the report provides salary adjustment, annual and equity incentive plan, human resource management practices, and employee benefit plan prevalence data. The foreword to the summary report will be written by a notable Mid-Atlantic entrepreneur in the final survey report.

Questions concerning the survey should be directed to or (703) 673-9431.
