Redmond Magazine Survey Finds Higher IT Salaries

Every year Redmond magazine does a salary survey and the last few have been pretty flat when it comes to salary growth. I was expecting more flatness this time around. Boy, was I surprised to find that on average your pay went up 3.25 percent. Now that may not put you in the market for that new 60' Hatteras, but you shouldn't have to settle for a leaky dingy either.

Almost 60 percent of readers got raises. That's also pretty sweet!

In case you are looking to switch gears, the top areas of expertise for the money include data warehousing, research and development and software design. All have average salaries of over 100 grand.
