Despite its wealth of national parks and natural wonders, Utah does not enjoy a wealth of offerings for project managers. In nearly every field, in every city, Utah’s project management professionals earn below the national average. The sole exception is industrial production managers, who make over $89,000 on average in Salt Lake City and a median salary of more than $94,000 in the Provo-Orem area. Natural sciences managers fare the worst statewide, and average some of the lowest earnings in Salt Lake City, at under $88,000 per year.
