The median raise in base salaries is 0.8% for an IT staffer and 1.6% for managers. For staffers, the biggest median raises came in the functions of collaboration at 2.1%, and Web infrastructure, BI/analytics, and HRIS at 1.8%. While raises are skimpy, the sad part is this year's results are actually a lift from the recent past. In 2010--a.k.a. the year of the pay freeze--the median raise was zero.
