IT Salaries Flat While DBA Take Increases

Posted in: Uncategorized

A survey by outsourcer Yoh Services LLC covered by Information week reveals that there is little momentum in U.S. IT salaries through 2005 so far. Salaries have remained flat and although some momentum, so far it has not shown itself to be sustainable. However, costs are steadily increasing in a few fields, and among them is Oracle database administration. Another interesting observation is that average IT wages in the U.S. have increased about 5.1% since January 2001. A quick check at the U.S. Goverment Bureau of Labour Statistics confirms our suspicion that this has trailed inflation: It takes $1103.33 today to buy what would have cost only $1000 in 2001.
