1. Chief Information Officer


No surprise here — the person at the top of the IT org chart is usually the most highly compensated. For 2018, Robert Half predicts that CIO pay will range from $170,500 in the 25th percentile to $287,000 in the 95th percentile, and the median pay will be about $202,500. By comparison, Robert Half pegged CIO pay at $175,000 to $279,000 in 2017. (Note: Robert Half changed its methodology for reporting salaries for the 2018 report, so the low end of the 2017 ranges tends to be a little higher than for 2018.)
