    In my experience, it depends on the quality standards of the company. I've worked for companies that exclusively hired young, fresh-out-of-college types simply because it was way cheaper. After a decade in engineering, your starting salary for a new job doubles, so start-ups tend to stick to the lower end. Big companies or established companies will pay more for extra experience.
