Not surprisingly, C-level executives are the most highly compensated group in IT. Chief information offers, chief technology officers and other executives said they are earning around $185,000 for 2018. That’s a $15,000 increase over the $170,000 they earned in 2017, and that was the biggest pay raise experienced by any group in the survey.

Among the people who participated in the survey, 9% identified themselves as CIOs, CTOs or other tech executives.
