Still longing for the boom years? The ongoing recession has taught us that the good days probably aren’t coming back for a while, but that doesn’t mean the boss’s paycheck is suffering. For a solid perspective on the current state of salaries for IT executives, IT management consulting firm Janco Associates, based in Park City, Utah, recently compiled and released its 2010 Mid-Year Information Technology Compensation Study. Janco Associates (www.e-janco.com) surveyed more than 220 large companies and about 700 midsize companies to gather the current going rates for numerous IT positions, compared with pre-recession salaries (using January 2007 as a benchmark). Some good news: total mean compensation for IT professionals has risen. But that’s not necessarily the case for IT executives at small and midsize companies, whose pay is still soft. The following presentation shows the current salaries for nine top IT executive positions, compared with pre-recession highs. See how paychecks at your company stack up to today’s compensation rates.
