0%: Pay Freeze (Annual Salary Survey)

Mar 31, 2010

No pay raise this year.


Zero.


In 2010, for the first time in the last 11 years of InformationWeek’s annual U.S. IT Salary Survey, the median raise for IT professionals is 0%, according to the 20,492 IT pros who responded between November and January. That flat pay holds true for IT managers and staffers, for both their base salaries and total compensation, which includes bonuses. It holds true for IT consultants and contractors, too. If stock options were the sign of the economic times at the start of the last decade, the salary freeze is the symbol for the start of this one.
