Congratulations on your new position. If you have been out of the electrical engineering profession for 10 years the median salaries have risen quite a bit. The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) has an online salary survey that's organized by geographic region. See: (http://salaryapp.ieeeusa.org/rt/salary_database/help
) You have to be a member or pay a fee to see the data. The median salary for a USA EE is just under $100K. I retired over 10 years ago but still maintain my IEEE membership. I just looked what a median salary would be for a person with the skills I had when I retired. $111,500. I didn't make near that amount at my peak but I was well compensated. Apply your skills to the job and learn as much of the new stuff as possible. If the job turns out to be to your liking, consider joining a professional society and taking the professional engineers licensing exam. Both will make you more valuable to the company.
