Salary Structures

The University has developed pay structures to help ensure a competitive level of pay within our relevant labor markets. Relevant labor markets differ from job group to job group and reflect geographic areas from where we are likely to hire qualified candidates. 

Salary structures are designed to help managers determine and manage pay for staff members. Princeton’s salary structures are relatively broad to account for differences in performance, knowledge, skills, abilities and experience. The structures are also designed to allow for reasonable career growth. Salary structures are reviewed by the Compensation Team on an annual basis to ensure they accurately reflect competitive labor markets.
