More Pay and You're OK
The Gartner Group has a new
that says roughly what our upcoming Redmond
survey says: IT is immune to our current economic malaise. Most shops plan to
add staff and, as the old laws of supply-and-demand state, this demand will
cause wages to increase.
Salaries are already going up, but for now they're roughly on a cost-of-living
basis, at an average increase of 3.6 percent. The good news? Bonuses are also
up, so get your speech ready!
Hot areas include network engineers (more on this in our next item), database
admins, Web programmers and enterprise architects.
How is your shop doing in hiring and raises? E-mail me at [email protected].
We'll post your comments (using first names only) in an upcoming newsletter.
