IT salary levels for developers, IT managers, systems administrators, network engineers, help desk experts and more.

IT salary levels, based on a variety of IT salary surveys, have hit a rough patch in the last few years. The decent gains in IT salaries prior to 2007 have been essentially eaten away by the long downturn. That’s the bad news.

The good news is that IT professionals continue to pull in some healthy paychecks, relative to other industries. In fact, the continued good IT salary levels are truly stellar in light of one piece of grim news: as many as 500,000 American and European IT jobs have been axed in the recession, according to the Hackett Group. That even in this brutal climate, the salary levels for some veteran IT professionals still leans toward six figures – and mid-level staffers are not worlds behind – testifies to the resilience of the IT profession.

The following list of IT salaries illustrates some overall trends. An IT project manager with more than 7 years of experience earns (on average) in the $100k range, while that same pro with just 2-4 years under their belt pulls in about $70k. An IT staffer who works for a big outfit makes more than his small business counterpart (for instance, an Enterprise Infrastructure Manager makes $108k). IT security professionals are perennially in demand, so the $102k annual salary for IS Security Managers is no surprise. And thought leaders, the people who actually envision IT systems, do quite well, hence the $108k for Systems Architects.

As for developers, their salary levels range wildly, from a newbie client server programmer, $54k, to an advanced Operating Systems Programmer, $105k. (Naturally location makes a big difference as well, with developers in big cities making far more).

The following list of IT salaries also reveals one other key fact: a fortunate few in any given IT job title command a substantially larger salary. Each of the salary charts plots pay levels on a bell curve, with the average IT staffers grouped in the middle. So, for instance, while the average IT Project Coordinator earns $88k, those in the top 10% pull in about $115k. These top earners tend to work, again, for larger companies, in hotter sectors within their niche, and often have great expertise in related areas.
