Almost three-fourths (74%) of architecture firms reported some level of salary increase to employees upon licensure. That percentage increase varies by firm size, with smaller firms providing larger bumps. For firms with fewer than 20 employees, the bump for licensure was a salary premium of 5% to 9%, while firms with more employees offered premiums of 1% to 4%.
