Thank the state with the Liberty Bell for giving project management professionals the freedom to choose from many winning opportunities. In Johnstown, architectural and engineering managers make over $137,000, while Williamsport construction managers receive over $110,000, and industrial production managers earn more than $98,000, on average. Allentown-Bethlehem-Easton is the place for natural sciences managers, who earn nearly $119,000 annually. Several regions pay over the national average for transportation, storage, and distribution managers, among them York-Hanover, Pittsburgh, Harrisburg-Carlisle, Erie, Lancaster, and Reading. The only sour note: not a single metropolitan area offers an above-average wage for computer and information systems managers.
