Historic IT Compensation for IT Executives
Historic IT Compensation analysis by Janco Associates shows that the Vice President of Technical Services has fared better in organizations of all sizes over the past five years than CIOs.
Since 2013 mean compensation for CIOs in large organizations has risen by 7.5% from $181,240 to $194,841 ($13,601). At the same time, in those same organizations, the VP of Technical Services compensation has risen by 19.7% from $140,267 to $167,961 ($27,653). In addition CSOs, also topped CIOs in large enterprises with an increase of 14.2%.
In midsize enterprises CIOs, in the same five years saw their compensation rise by 9.6% or $15,523. However, the VP of Technical Services saw their compensation increase by $17,991 or 13.8%.
That does not mean that CIOs are doing poorly. Rather the difference in compensations has eroded a bit in the past few years.
