IT manager salaries fall in the US

While British IT managers have seen a 7% increase in salaries over the past year, their counterparts across the pond are not so lucky, with salaries falling by an average of 8%, representing the first drop in IT pay in America for a decade.

The research, conducted by the magazine Information Week also claims that regular IT professionals below management level could expect to see 11% falls in pay.

A recent study by CSSA found that job roles across the IT sector in the UK have seen salary increases of almost 6% and 7% respectively in the last year, despite the economic downturn.

The American study questioned 10,000 managers, many of whom enjoyed pay rises of up to 10% last year.

The highest-paid professionals often relate to internet security and wireless infrastructure, the study found, with IT managers specialising in wireless and web infrastructure, enterprise resource planning, and web security and design more valued than generic managers.

The study also found that stress and lower morale are increasingly inflicting staff.

‘I wish there were more hours in the day, or we didn’t have to work as much, but we all have interesting jobs that everyone likes, and we don’t have a lot of turnover, so I think everyone is happy for the most part,’ one IT manager told researchers.
