    DETAILS

    Zweig Group's 2019 Principals, Partners & Owners Survey of AEC Firms is a comprehensive study of owners and top managers of U.S. AEC firms. This eye-opening report covers ownership, stock appreciation, buy/sell agreements, non-compete agreements, voting rights, roles, responsibilities, perks, compensation, and more.

    The 2019 Principals, Partners, and Owners Survey has data on the following:Principal compensation, benefits, and perks

    Common issues and challenges related to running an AEC firm

    Qualifications, job requirements, and demographics of principals, partners, & owners in the industry

    Employment agreements, non-competes, and stock buyback provisions

    How principals manage time and break down the work day

    Zweig Group's 2019 Principals, Partners & Owners Survey of AEC Firms is the one annual report for, by, and about principals and top managers in U.S. AEC firms, and it's the only source of inside information on the issues that principals are really concerned with. 


    For the 2019 edition, principals from across the U.S. in the AAEC industry were questioned about their compensation, perks, privileges, ownership, work habits, professional backgrounds, personal life, and feelings about business practices, fellow principals, and industry issues. Their responses were then tabulated and analyzed.


    Compensation: The report has comparative data on salaries, bonuses, owner distributions, total compensation, and perks by firm type, region, size, growth rate, and firm profit, plus by the principal's title, the percentage of ownership, age, and gender. 


    Perks: What's normal and what's excessive in the area of "perks" for principals? Get statistics on every kind of perk–including vacations, cellular phones, country club memberships, tax preparation, and auto allowances.


    Roles & responsibilities: Data on how many hours principals typically work per week, their chargeability, time spent on different tasks, vacation taken (or not taken), and more. We also asked principals how they felt about their fellow owners and board of directors.
