IT executives cashed in higher bonuses than their subordinates at the end of 2007.

If you are an IT executive, chances are you received a bigger raise than your staff at the end of 2007. IT executives received an average raise of 4.7% this year, while IT managers and professionals received 4 percent raises - a few tenths of a percent below the rate of inflation. (The consumer price index rose 4.3% in November 2007 from the previous year.) The gap is smallest at companies below $100 million.
