The median staff bonus is $5,000, making up 6% of total pay. At 6%, bonuses this year make up a larger chunk of total compensation than in any year except 2001, when the tech bubble blew the typical IT staff bonus to $11,000, or 18% of pay. IT managers rely slightly more on bonuses than IT staff, and this year is merely average for them--7.8% of pay came from bonuses.
