No surprise, really--base pay (49%), job/company stability (47%) and benefits (43%) matter most to the 711 IT staff members who responded to our 2012 Network Computing Salary Survey. Respondents were allowed up to seven choices.

The story was slightly different for managers: While 48% cited base pay and 47% chose job/company stability, 44% want a challenging job or responsibilities, which ranked fourth for staff members.

Prestige and reputation of the company ranked last for both staff members and managers, at 6% for both.
