Next Survey Finds Salaries, Bonuses and Contract Rates Up for U.S. Tech Pros-5 Next

Salary Satisfaction

After a two-year slide, tech pros are reporting being more satisfied with their pay (53 percent). Confidence in switching jobs also remained high, with 67 percent believing they could easily find a favorable new position. Additionally, more than a third intend to do just that in 2016.

The tech job market is strong and IT pros are reaping the benefits. According to the latest salary survey from Dice, salaries rose 7.7 percent year-over-year in 2015, representing the largest yearly increase ever. The survey also found that while the rate of those receiving bonuses remained steady, the amount of those bonuses rose 7 percent from 2014. Contract workers also saw positive increases in income during 2015, with a rise of 5 percent in hourly compensation.

It's no surprise that salary satisfaction for IT pros is increasing. For the first time ever, seven metro markets across the U.S. posted six-figure average salary figures for tech professionals. Silicon Valley once again posted the highest average salaries overall.
