IT Salaries Rise
In 2015 IT Salaries will increase across the board for IT Pros. In preliminary results of Janco Associates 2015 IT Salary survey they have found that all levels of IT Professionals and in all sizes if IT organizations salaries are going up. The big winners are the executive levels of IT in mid-sized organizations.
IT compensation for all IT Professionals has increased by 2.85% in the last 12 months. Between January 2014 and January 2015 the total mean compensation for all IT Professionals has increased from $79,674 to $81,948.
