Average annual salaries for CIOs and other top IT leadership positions have remained flat overall since 2008, according to new research from Janco Associates and eJobDescription.com. The accompanying report, the "Mid-Year 2014 IT Salary Survey," reveals that the number of IT jobs has increased within this period. And rank-and-file tech workers are seeing slight gains in compensation levels. However, top executives aren't getting much of any bump in salary, and a number of positions—particularly for those overseeing systems security, administration and consulting services—have declined in terms of earning power. Technical services executives, however, are bucking this trend, as their salaries have risen sharply since 2008, findings show. Meanwhile, organizations are cutting back on benefits, as only 41 percent offer 401(k) plans, which are down from 64 percent in 2010, and just 47 percent provide personal performance bonuses, which are down from 58 percent in 2010. The research was compiled using data from more than 255 large and nearly 810 mid-sized organizations. For more about the Janco findings, click here.
