Salaries stretch, outlook brightens
Our 2011 Salary Survey respondents earned an average of $86,926, a 5% jump from their 2010 salaries. When looking ahead to 2012, this year’s respondents predicted their average annual salaries would jump by another 4% to $90,392.
This year’s respondents saw a larger year-over-year increase than last year’s crop, who barely managed a 1% increase in pay vs. 2009. Participants were also a bit gloomier last year, predicting their salaries wouldn’t budge in the coming year and might even drop. The current group’s estimated 4% jump would translate to nearly a 10% raise between 2010 and 2012.
