Mid-Year 2014 IT Salary Survey Released

July 1st, 2014

Janco conducts an I.T. salary survey twice a year in conjunction with eJobDescription.com. The new survey includes data from 256 large and 808 mid-sized organizations contacted during the second quarter of 2014.

Salaries have not increased significantly and neither has the number of I.T. jobs, the survey finds. Although companies added 32,200 jobs in the first half of 2014, that’s less than the 36,500 jobs added during the same period in 2013. Total employment in the I.T. sector has surpassed where it was before the 2008 recession but still lingers below the industry-high levels in 2000.

The report also highlights the highest-paid I.T. professionals. This year, Facebook’s chief technology officer Michael Schroepfer tops the list with a total compensation package of $12.5 million. That’s down from $20 million he earned in 2012, according to the company’s financial filings.
