Salaries for Virtualization? Flat.
Virtualization salaries were on average flat year-over-year at $84,777, according to new data from Dice.com, the leading career site for technology and engineering professionals. Its annual Salary Survey finds:
- Virtualization skills do come at a premium, as nationally tech workers earn $78,845 per year.
- Dissatisfaction soared to 38% of technology professionals from just 32% a year ago (our PhD’s tell us this is statistically significant!);
- At the same time Dice is seeing more demand from hiring companies, evident in more searches of the resume database and increased job postings. Virtualization postings are up 30% year-over-year.
- More demand for Virtualization + Unhappy Tech Professionals = Retention issues.
