Re: About those salaries
AbeG, I guess my reaction to the average salary cited in this infographic ($61,000) seemed low compared to the typical Network Computing reader, who is probably at a fairly advanced level. Maybe I am being too optimistic -- do you think differently about that?
Your story about new employees being paid half is similar to what I have experienced in my profession. BUT, the improbability of increasing to what current senior people make is horrible. Talk about a demotivator :(
