Two reports came out recently that paint a less-than-rosy picture of our beloved IT industry. While we're in the midst of some kind of economic recovery, it's not exactly raging.
IDC, for instance, predicts the software industry will grow an anemic 2 percent, services a paltry 3 percent, and hardware an OK 5 percent. IT salaries appear to be on a similar but slightly lower trajectory. Research firm Computer Economics predicts average raises of 1.8 percent.
That may seem like a slap in the face, but given the economy we've lived through and our current rate of unemployment, I'd thank my boss for any kind of raise.
What about you? Is your salary rising, or are bosses using the economy as an excuse to stiff workers? Gripes and gratefulness equally welcome at [email protected]
