2012 Salary Survey Shows IT Skills Remain In Short Supply On The Street
5. What Matters Most?
It's no surprise, despite the numerous corporate HR surveys that say otherwise, that base pay is the single most important part of a job, with IT staff respondents continually indicating it is the most important factor in every survey since 2010. This year, 51% said base pay was the most important factor, declining from 55% last year. With slightly fewer respondents saying pay was the most important, the number of IT professionals indicating that job stability was important increased, from 42% in 2011 to 44% in 2012. With so much uncertainty in the financial services business, is it a surprise that job stability is on the top of minds of workers?
