    Depends on the company, some EA actually run the department. EAs manage the top tier person and is usually on call 24/7. I sit next to two EA and they're not just sitting around filing and scheduling meetings on Outlook. They interact with the whole organization and resolve issues. It's the whole business process side that devs have no clue about.

  • Think about it if there was a VP making 1M net why would his EA not make 110 ? He/she would have insight all what the VP is doing and would have to make judgement calls very day.

      what judgement calls would they be? i know EAs do a lot of work but I was under the impression that most of is organizing events and maintaining their boss's calendar.

      Judgment call like - should we have back to back meetings or allow for travel time in between meetings.
      It's a very technical role. I would think 110k would be the absolute minimum.

    Good EAs are more than deserving of a salary that tops engineers

    FB and Google EA comps in the $150k+ range, $110k is nothing

      It helps if you're blond/white....White EA's with less experience will make as much as minority EA's with more experience. The job requirements and expectations less for white vs minority. Whites receive higher ratings during reviews ......This is well known in the EA world but not discuss much

    EA's get paid a high starting salary because they have little/no upward mobility. That salary will change little over the next five years compared to a dev that follows a typical promotion schedule
