The Oracle job market has always been ridiculously competitive, but now there is some good news — at least for those who already have a job.
Information Week recently did a detailed survey of IT salaries and found some interesting trends.
First, base salaries are edging up for the first time in three years, and non-managerial data management pros are at the top of the list. For example, the median data mining and data warehousing salary is up to $93,000, and the median enterprise application integration salary is $114,000. ERP, security and database development specialists are also in the top 10. Raises are up 3.6% and bonuses rose as well, to 5%.
Not bad, but back in the dot-com bubble days the average manager got a whopping 18% bonus. Beggars can’t be choosers, however!
