Glassdoor Economist Pay Overview

What is the pay outlook for Military & Protective Services?

Job opportunities in military and protective services depend heavily on government budgets that may not be flexible. Pay scales rely heavily on time in service and are less-performance based, but public sector benefits can be attractive. Protective services roles are also an opportunity for veterans looking to transition into civilian roles. Education requirements in military and protective services vary, though many jobs don't require a Bachelor's degree.
