Wisconsin isn’t the best place in the country to be a project manager, but if you don’t want to leave your cheese behind, consider being an industrial project manager or a transportation, storage, and distribution manager in Madison or Sheboygan – both jobs in those locales make over $83,000 per year, which is more than the national average. Another region that pays more competitive wages is the metropolitan Milwaukee area, particularly for industrial project managers and natural sciences managers. Of all the jobs in the field, construction managers in Oshkosh-Neenah fare the worst in the state, with an average salary of under $48,000, or 57% of the national median salary.
