TechRepublic has just published its 2010 IT Skills and Salary Report, created in conjunction with Global Knowledge.
For a look at salary and job trends, download our just released 2010 IT Skills and Salary Report. This comprehensive survey, from Global Knowledge in conjunction with TechRepublic, offers glimpses into the areas that affect your working life as an IT pro. Over 19,500 IT pros responded to the survey, which is a 12% increase over last year. In addition to the usual breakdown of salary by job role, industry, and geographic location, there are also sections on:
- Trends in base pay, bonuses, and benefits
- The impact of training and certification on salary (positive)
- Factors that influence job satisfaction
On the job satisfaction front, I found the following statistics to be interesting. The report says:
Several important differences exist between men and women in regard to factors associated with job satisfaction. Women are significantly more interested in new responsibilities (65% vs.57%), work/life balance (83% vs. 77%), communication with peers and management (66% vs. 56%), and respect for the
work performed (88% vs. 81%).
Of course, the report couldn't drill down into the reasons why women are more interested in new responsibilities, but I wonder why that would be. Any thoughts?
