If you enjoy the rugged coast, boats, and lobster, Maine is ideal – the only downside is how much project management professionals make there. The sole beacon shines for natural sciences managers, who make 103% of the U.S. median annual salary, or $119,000, in the Portland-South Portland-Biddeford region. The most jobs are found in construction management, with 660 people in the field in the greater Portland area, and another 230 working in Bangor and Lewiston-Auburn. Computer and information systems managers earn considerably less than the national average, at 69% of the median salary in Bangor and 74% in Lewiston-Auburn.
