When a network engineer isn’t getting paid for his or her work, it can lead to a situation in which the network engineer becomes a freelancer.
That’s when a company can offer a better deal to a network engineering position or a better compensation package to an engineering position, experts said.
A new report from the non-profit group Network Professionals says that network engineers, engineers who work with large companies, and network administrators all make a lot of money from reselling out their work.
That is a problem for companies that need network engineers for their systems, services, or IT infrastructure, experts say.
The report was compiled by the National Network Engineers Association and the Institute for Digital Networking.
It found that network administrators make an average of $80,000 a year.
Some of the biggest earners include network engineers who make more than $100,000 and those who make over $150,000.
A network administrator also makes money from selling reselling their work, the report says.
In 2014, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics counted 5,000 network engineers as freelancers.
Those who worked as network engineers made a total of $4.7 billion.
It is unclear how much money network engineers earn from resellers, but some experts estimate it could be as much as $10 billion a year, the study says.
The nonprofit organization says that the demand for network engineers is high, especially in a time of high-growth markets.
The demand is growing because of the growing popularity of mobile devices and cloud computing.
“Network engineers are a critical part of our companies and our companies need to continue to meet that demand,” Network Professionists President and CEO Michael Henn, who also worked at Verizon, said in a statement.
He said that he hoped the report would encourage more companies to hire network engineers.
The study did not analyze how much the network engineers make.
It said that some network engineers work for large companies that have higher compensation packages, such as the executives of Google, Facebook, and Microsoft.
In the report, Network Professioners said that reselling networks could cause the salaries of network engineers to drop, because the companies will be less willing to pay them for their services.
A company could make a profit by reselling network engineers out of its own profits and reduce the costs to network engineers by selling the resellers work.
The company could also sell the network work to other companies for less than the value of the network services the network engineering employee has earned, Network Professors says.
Companies that resell work also have a financial incentive to do so, because reselling could generate more revenue for them.
“Companies are trying to get more revenue,” Henn said.
“We have a situation where people are getting paid to do things that are not required.
That creates a downward pressure on salaries.”
A large number of the engineers who made the list were paid on a full-time basis, the researchers found.
In addition, Network Experts found that engineers who worked in small companies made more money than engineers who are more highly compensated.
Those companies could also be selling out their networks to other people or reselling them for lower prices, NetworkProfessors said.
Henn told CNNMoney that the researchers didn’t measure the amount of money network technicians earn because they weren’t trained in that area.
Instead, Network Pros looked at a variety of factors including compensation, turnover rates, and how many people are hired by the company.
It’s a tough job market, with some companies only hiring a handful of people, NetworkPros said.
The researchers looked at 10 different industries and compared the numbers for a few of them.
They found that some of the highest-paying industries include health care, finance, and education.
Other industries are for manufacturing and transportation.
The highest-paid workers are engineers who were paid $200,000 or more per year, while those with a salary of $40,000 to $60,000 made the lowest.
