Re: Good base career choice
@TerryB--it's a valid question, and certainly the roles will vary by company size. We've seen a steady move toward more and more finely tuned jobs in IT for some time now, though that might be in part due to the size of companies represented by survey respondents. Nearly 60% of respondents to this survey work for companies that employ 500 or more people -- and fully a third of those respondents work for companies with more than 5,000 employees.

Re: Good base career choice
@Whoopty--It's deifnitely a chance for entry level or even longer-term professionals to have a look and see where they might direct their careers for the best paying outcomes. Of course, these results are median comp nationwide, so there will be regional differences depending on which part of the country one targets. But still, all of these positions pay well above the US median of approximately $55K/year for those with Bachelor degrees or higher.
