IT Salary Survey - Over 40 years of concise data

The Compensation Study utilized data from Janco Associates Compensation Database for Information Technology professionals.  This database contains compensation information on many firms across the United States and Canada.  The database is classified by normalized job position, taking into account similarities in job function and responsibilities, rather than merely job title.

From this database, compensation benchmark ranges are established for each normalized job position.  In analyzing the study data, the upper and lower quartiles are eliminated to determine Janco’s Benchmark Ranges.  The benchmark ranges are then used to assess the alignment of a company’s actual compensation to the marketplace for each job function.

The Janco Benchmark represents our assessment of the compensation level required for organizations to remain competitive and minimize the risk of losing employees to other organizations.

Reviews were conducted from the standpoint of a comparison of base salary and, when appropriate, from the additional standpoint of total compensation.  Total compensation is determined by adding the budgetary bonus amounts and an equivalent cash value for “above-standard” compensation to an individual’s base salary.

The Compensation Study data was divided into two categories.  Large companies are companies whose gross revenues are equal to or greater than $500 MM or more than 1,000 total employees.  Mid-sized companies are companies whose gross revenues are less than $500 MM and less than 1,000 employees
