If you were employed in the media/publishing industry by a company located in the Mid-Atlantic region, managed more than 500TB of storage and 21 to 50 people, possessed two storage certifications and worked in a dedicated storage group, this would be your best chance, on average, to pull in one of the biggest storage salaries.

salary survey was the media/publishing industry (which averaged $93,143), followed by financial services ($86,348), healthcare/pharmaceuticals ($80,417) and utilities ($80,357). The lowest average salaries were reported in education ($61,692) and construction ($64,400) (see "Average salary by industry," previous page).

The media/publishing industry also doled out the largest raises in terms of a percentage gain (nearly 16%), followed by transportation/travel & hospitality at 12.8%. Raises in other industries didn't get out of the mid single-digits (see "2004 to 2005 salary increases by industry," previous page).

The biggest bonuses, however, are anticipated in the healthcare/pharmaceuticals industry. Respondents in this field expect an average of $8,236 in bonuses; they were followed by respondents in manufacturing ($7,838), financial services ($7,082) and utilities ($6,321). Anticipated bonuses in the media/publishing industry, which generally paid well in this year's survey, averaged only $2,229 vs. an overall average bonus of $5,495; this was up from an average bonus of $4,000 the year before. However, 87 of our 250 respondents received no bonus in 2005 (see "Anticipated 2005 bonus by industry," previous page).
