6. Chief Operating Officer/ General Manager
COOs have a monthly gross salary of $20,773. He/she is in 2nd in command to the chief executive officer and is in-charge of the day to day operations of the company. That said, you certainly need to be the COO of a mid to big sized company in order to command that kind of salary.
Definitely not a start-up. As a COO, one can expect to have over hundred people under his care including the VP, operations manager, supervisors and so on. To rise up the corporate ladder that high, results hardly matter, you need to be good with people according to awarding winning HR manager.
