Average salary and starting salary levels for Medical Science Liaisons and MSL management in the U.S. revealed

Average salary and starting salary levels for Medical Science Liaisons and MSL management in the U.S. revealed

The Medical Science Liaison Society published the results of its 2nd annual global Medical Science Liaison salary and compensation survey at the end of December 2015. The 2015 survey revealed a range of salary-related data. The primary purpose of the survey was to gain a better awareness of the current MSL and MSL Management salary and compensation levels for individuals employed within the pharmaceutical, medical devices, biotechnology, and other healthcare companies.

There is a number of key aspects to recruitment and retention of the most qualified MSLs and MSL managers, but salary remains one of the most important. However, no reliable nor robust data on MSL salary and compensation levels was available before the MSL Society’s MSL Salary & Compensation Survey. The 2015 survey includes responses from 1,259 professionals working as an MSL or MSL manager across 69 countries, making it the largest, most reliable global MSL salary database.

While recruitment and retention of the most suitably skilled and knowledgeable team members rely on numerous factors including working conditions, job satisfaction and the opportunity for development and advancement, salary and compensation remain one of the key elements in attracting the right talent. Compensation for both MSLs and MSL managers is influenced by company type, specific role, and longevity of the career. The 2015 survey results established the average salary for MSLs overall, new MSLs as well as MSL management in the U.S.

Gender Pay Gaps Among Medical Science Liaisons and MSL Management

Gender Pay Gaps Among Medical Science Liaisons and MSL Management

For the first time, gender pay gaps have been studied among Medical Science Liaisons (MSL) and MSL Management. Although gender pay gaps have not been studied within the Medical Science Liaison profession specifically, they have been investigated in numerous professions within healthcare and the pharmaceutical industry, including pharmaceutical and biotech sales representatives, healthcare sales, and medicine. 

The Medical Science Liaison Society recently conducted the 2nd annual global survey on Salary and Compensation levels for both Medical Science Liaisons (MSLs) and MSL Management, which included salaries for both groups based on gender. While the primary purpose of this survey was to gain a better insight into the present level of MSL and MSL Management salary and compensation levels across biotechnology, pharmaceutical, medical devices, and other healthcare companies, gender pay gap differences were revealed for the first time. Several groups were evaluated in the study including MSLs in the U.S. and globally, new MSLs in the U.S. and globally, and MSL managers in the U.S. and globally.

Thanks to all those who participated in the 2015 MSL Salary & Compensation Survey conducted by the MSL Society. We had 1,259 MSLs and managers from 69 countries participating!
 
It was an awesome response and we gained insights into current global MSL salary and compensation levels across pharmaceutical, biotechnology, medical devices, and other healthcare companies. 

The 2015 survey is our 2nd annual global survey on global MSL Salary and Compensation levels. Last year’s survey was the first ever global survey conducted of its kind on MSL salary and compensation. Like last year, the primary purpose of this year’s survey was to gain insights into current global MSL salary and compensation levels across pharmaceutical, biotechnology, medical devices, and other healthcare companies.
 
Our 2015 survey is THE largest database of MSL salaries, and as a result, it is the most comprehensive and authoritative resource on global MSL salary and compensation levels. The data is available in multiple versions including the full global results and individual reports for the 9 countries that had the greatest number of responses including Australia, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, U.K., and the USA. 

We broke down each section representing several salary topics including salary ranges, salary by degree, salary by role (MSL, Sr MSL etc), salary by years of experience, salary by academic degree, and salary by company type (large pharma, small pharma etc). 

Like all our research, all the slides are available Free for all members of the MSL Society as well as to those who participated. We hope the MSL community will continue to participate in all future MSL Society research. Our goal is to add value to the global MSL community.

We strongly believe this type of information should be readily available and free! We will NEVER sell the data to anyone!

Everyone who participated received a link via email to download all the reports. All members of the MSL Society can download all reports under the “resources” tab then “MSL Reports” on the MSL Society website. 

We hope the MSL community finds the information valuable!

RESULTS: 2016 Global Medical Science Liaison Salary & Compensation Survey

The 2016 results are FINALLY available!

Thanks to all those who participated in the 2016 MSL Salary & Compensation Survey. This was by far the largest MSL Society Salary survey to date. We had 1,677 MSL professionals from 69 countries participating! Our 2016 survey is the largest database of MSL salaries, and as a result, it is the most comprehensive and authoritative resource on global MSL salary and compensation levels.

Due to the number of respondents, it took us longer than we anticipated to analyze the results.

This year, we made the data available in multiple versions including the full global results and individual reports for the 11 countries that had the greatest number of responses including Australia, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland, U.K., and the USA.

The 2016 survey was our 3rd annual global survey on global MSL Salary and Compensation levels. Like previous years, the primary purpose of this year’s survey was to gain insights into current global MSL salary and compensation levels across pharmaceutical, biotechnology, medical devices, and other healthcare companies.

We broke down each section representing several salary topics including salary ranges, salary by degree, salary by role (MSL, Sr MSL etc), salary by years of experience, salary by academic degree, and salary by company type (large pharma, small pharma etc).

New this year, the salary data is also reported by quartile for each role to allow respondents to understand their remuneration relative to the market.

For 2017, we will create individual country level reports for any country that has at least 40 responses. 

Like all our research, all the reports are available Free for all members of the MSL Society as well as those who participated.

Our goal is to add value to the global MSL community. We strongly believe this type of information should be readily available and free! We will NEVER sell the data to anyone!

Everyone who completed the survey already received a link to download all the reports.

All members of the MSL Society can download all the salary reports under the “resources” tab then “MSL Reports” on the MSL Society website.
