IT executive salaries were up 1.92 percent in large enterprises in the fourth quarter of 2006, but down 0.80 in midsize companies over the same period. This same trend had a more pronounced effect among IT middle managers; those in the larger enterprises saw gains of 2.14 percent while those in midsize ones lost 1.2 percent.
Only staff-level IT professionals gained in salary regardless of the size of their organization in the fourth quarter of 2006; those in the largest companies gained 1.16 percent and those in smaller ones gained 0.96 percent.
Crunched together, IT professionals across the board saw their salaries swell by 0.72 percent at the end of 2006.
While compensation for CIOs in all enterprises has been relatively flat, with the mean between $174,979 and $169,504, it has generally increased for CIOs' direct reports.
