View Full Version : Another Salary Survey

At the risk of starting another round of "those guys don't know what they're talking about" - here is a recent salary survey reported in Computerworld.

As Service Desk always seems to be the contentious one, says $45k - $55K in this one - which again seems about right to me.

Here are the ranges for Auckland and Wellington

Looking for Oracle DBA's and Middleware Specialists (with Web Logic background preferably) if anyone out there fits the bill, drop me a line.

Contract rates seem what I was getting offered - the lower end that is.

Permanent, I think it's high, no-one offered me that...and it can depend anyway.

Here, it's a smaller private co, and it's not bad, about what I expected.

The one before - they were a large Govt dept, and the pay there was about what I expected - quite a lot more than here.

Seems normal...

I often wonder where these numbers come from

I find this one hard to believe .
"HelpDesk/DesktopSupport.. $45-50k"
You get some VERY highly qualified & experienced people appling for low end jobs(with low end pay )

DesktopSupport, basic server support. $42k (+ must supply my own car for onsite jobs)

and absoulutley no shortage of guys who would take my job & pay, despite how low it is (we get them coming in & ringing looking for jobs all the time)
