The median annual wage of management analysts was $78,160 in May 2010. The median wage is the wage at which half the workers in an occupation earned more than that amount and half earned less. The lowest 10 percent earned less than $43,900, and the top 10 percent earned more than $138,790.
Analysts work under tight deadlines, which often require working long hours. In 2010, nearly one-third worked more than 40 hours per week.
