IT and Project Manager Salary Survey
Does your paycheck show how hard you’ve been working? Probably not, as pay rates for IT and project managers remained flat between June 2010 and June 2011, according to the 2012 Mid-Year Salary Survey from IT management consulting firm Janco Associates. At large companies, a handful of IT manager positions and one IT project manager role actually saw small decreases in pay. On the positive side, application development managers got the biggest raises (2.16 percent), followed by computer operations managers (1.97 percent). Certain IT managers and project managers at medium-sized firms did not fare as well; some saw small cuts in pay, but a few saw their paychecks dwindle nearly two percent. Others are thriving, though: data warehouse managers saw an almost four percent pay bump, while raises for voice/data communications managers and project managers for network technical services both topped two percent.
