The state famed for silver, gold and gambling does not offer the best odds for high pay in project management. Better bets are in the Las Vegas-Paradise area, where architecture and engineering managers make over $131,000 per year on average, construction managers earn about $84,000 annually, and industrial production managers have salaries averaging slightly over $98,000. Nor are computer and information systems managers hitting any jackpots in Carson City, where a salary of $86,000 per year ranks it at 71% of the U.S. median.
