IT professionals see gains in salary, feeling secure
TORONTO — IT professionals have come through the most recent recession feeling secure in their roles, generally satisfied and not actively looking to jump ship, according to ComputerWorld Canada’s 2011 IT Salary and Skills Survey. There were slight increases in overall total compensation, with the highest-paying jurisdictions being Yukon and Northwest Territories. Bonuses were also up slightly with senior IT executives receiving an average of $20,000 and IT managers about $7,000.
