IT Salaries May See Modest Growth
"IT workers who have jobs should feel relatively secure and anticipate pay raises in the area of 2% to 3% this year," says Director of Research John Longwell of Computer Economics. "Experienced developers and managers will do better than operations and network support staff. There will be layoffs, but in relative terms, IT workers should fare better than many workers."
2009 seems likely to be a bad year for IT pay, but data from research-firm Computer Economics projects slight growth, with developers leading the pack. The biggest question is, of course, will even this slim growth hold up?
