Dr. Dobb’s 2012 Salary Survey


Definitely a must read article for any job seeker or interviewee; make sure to read and understand the trends before you negotiate.

Also for anyone who wants to speak with their manager about a raise our a bonus.

It does confirm some will known trends:

* Salaries on the coasts are higher.
* IT still pays will by comparison to jobs that are not in the knowledge economy, and pay reasonably well among the skilled professions.

Unfortunately, with a fairly large sample size, it also confirms some more disturbing things:

* Ageism is alive and well.
* Sexism is alive and well.
