Time To Ask for that Raise

If your boss keeps saying no to your raise, show him/her this! Despite the continuing economic malaise, IT pay went up this year, according to Janco Associates. The winners were IT pros in large companies whose pay went up around $600.

Those in medium-size companies actually went backwards, losing around a grand.

While the Janco report is generally upbeat, they did note that not much hiring is going on. So if you ask for a raise and your boss fires you instead, you could be in for a long wait.
