Salary survey – June 2011

After recession the salary/ pay scale in IT industry has gone back to the same level it was during 2007.  We often get lots of queries from small to mid size companies about salary ranges for different roles. Large companies purchase industry average / salary information every year before they close the compensation model for the year. As a recruitment company we have staffed several positions with different IT companies in last 3 months. We wanted to share information about some of the positions that we have closed recently so that our clients from small to mid size companies have this information readily available. We will also share information based on the salary survey that we conducted last month.

Salary information by job position that we have closed in last 3 months in small to midsize companies is as follows. We have deliberately removed information about candidates that we have placed in large companies because that range is different.
