2011 Houston IT Client Salary Survey






The Houston IT Salary Survey is an annual survey conducted by the president of JDA Professional Services, Inc., James Del Monte. The salaries in this survey are based on current average earnings at the time of publishing. This survey is an effective tool for guiding IT salaries year round. However, when using it to evaluate your own salary, you must take into consideration total compensation which has several variables. Some considerations that impact base salaries are bonuses, location, cost of insurance and other non cash incentives.





To speak to James Del Monte about JDA’s services please call 713.548.5444 or email him at jdel (at) jdapsi (dot) com




Total compensation for IT professionals is expected to increase sharply as the demand for talent exceeds supply . . .
