Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

IT workers in the US can expect a slight pay rise this year - but not enough to offset inflation.

After two years of job cuts it is unlikely anyone will complain - and front line staff look to have more chance of a rise than their bosses. The median raise is 1.8 per cent, while inflation for 2010 is expected to be 2.6 per cent.

But the survey warns that with continuing unemployment companies are still hiring staff for less than they were paying people to fill the posts before the recession.

Front line staff are most likely to get a rise, followed by managers and IT executives. Chiefs and directors will be last in line for more money.

Developers can expect 2.1 per cent increases, operations staff 2.0 per cent. Server and network staff and sys admins could see 1.9 per cent growth, managers 1.7 per cent and executives just 1.3 per cent.

The numbers come from Computer Economics and are based on Department of Labor figures and its own research.
