IT jobs in San Antonio getting a pay raise?

Wednesday, April 8th, 2015

IT jobs in San Antonio may be seeing a pay boost, according to a recent survey.

Technology pay in the United States saw another year of hikes with technology professionals earning $89,450 on average annually, up two percent from 2013, according to Dice’s annual salary survey.

More than half (61%) of technology professionals earned higher salaries in 2014, most frequently citing a merit raise as the reason for the increase. Another 25 percent say they received higher wages due to changing employers within the year.

Satisfaction with wages declined. Half (52%) of technology professionals were satisfied with their compensation in 2014, down from 54 percent in 2013. In fact, satisfaction with salaries has dipped each year since 2012, when it peaked at 57 percent and salaries saw the biggest year-over-year jump to 5.3 percent.

“As demand for technology professionals rises and highly-skilled talent is harder to find, the pressure is being reflected where it counts: paychecks,” said Shravan Goli, President of Dice.com. “Still, tech pros are less happy with their earnings, signaling to companies that in order to recruit and retain the best candidates, offering more will be necessary.”

With compensation rising, tech professionals are slightly less likely to relocate for a new job this year (30%) as compared to last year (28%).
