IT salary levels clearly face challenges created by the economic downturn. Unfortunately, IT salary raises have been minimal or none at all. According to Janco Associates, an IT-focused consulting firm that conducts annual IT salary surveys, “there is now a surplus of seasoned IT professionals” – hence the ceiling on IT salary increases.

More findings from Janco relating to 2010 IT salary:

• Layoffs have focused on middle management and IT support staff.

• Many mid-sized enterprises have stopped hiring all IT professionals altogether.

• IT hiring is limited to a few selected positions as enterprise continue to cut costs.

As you can see, the last few years have been particularly tough on IT salary levels:
