At least that's what the latest salary survey from InformationWeek bears out. They say,"The typical U.S. business technology manager now makes $105,000 in salary and cash bonuses, the first time this professional has joined the six-figure club in the 10 years InformationWeek has done a salary survey."
They caution, however, that this change comes amidst a time of slow IT job growth. This may mean that existing IT managers are getting paid more but have less staff. This is further borne out by the fact that there's been a drop in salary level for the 25 and under age group, so those people aren't coming into IT at the rate they used to.
