Colorado’s mountains, rivers, skiing, and sunshine make a gorgeous environment for project management professionals, who earn competitive wages in most parts of the state. Boulder leads the pack in many categories, with wages for natural sciences managers over $164,000 per year, architectural and engineering managers more than $139,000, and computer and information systems managers almost $135,000 annually. It is surprising, then, to see Boulder offering the lowest salary statewide to construction managers, a mere $65,000, or 78% of the U.S. average.
