I.T. hiring picks up

The I.T. jobs outlook is strongest among large companies, where many chief information officers have received the go-ahead to fulfill I.T. positions that were left unfulfilled last year, Janco Associates Inc., a management consulting firm specializing in information systems technology, says in its Mid-Year 2010 IT Salary Survey report.

In contrast, technology executives at smaller companies are being more cautious about hiring out of concern that the economic recovery will not be strong enough to support increased I.T. spending, the survey found.

Nonetheless, most chief information officers who participated in the survey said in post-survey interviews that they’re planning for 2011 with the assumption that the economy will improve early next year. If that holds true, I.T. hiring and compensation should rise for more companies, Janco says.

The survey reported the following average I.T. salaries for 2010 and 2009 and the year-to-year change:

Large companies

  • Executives: $143, 378, $142,914, 0.32%
  • Middle managers: $79,924, $79,230, 0.88%
  • Staff: $66,230, $65,965, 0.40%
  • Overall average: $81,960, $81,475, 0.60%

Mid-sized companies

  • Executives: $125,079, $126,031, -0.76%
  • Middle managers: $73,217, $72,444, 1.07%
  • Staff: $61,047, $60,279, 1.27%
  • Overall average: $74,430, $73,905, 0.71%
