    Yeah call centers are a great place to gain experience and insight into corporate worlds. Well worth doing a stint there for anybody in IT.

    @pctek,
    Grats, it's awesome to get a payrise and be rewarded like that, no matter how small!

    What makes you think this? If someone is fully employed at a company and working as a system administrator they would get in the 40k range

    Why ask questions if you already know everything?

    40k is flunky wages.

    Yeah...I didn't expect it, had been told payrises were a rare occurrence.......all good.

    We bought another company - Hosting Direct - most of it anyway, and took their support guy, I think he got paid more than us, and of course they had to keep him on that, not drop his.

    The company i work for last gave a cost of living payrise of 2% about 6 years ago. Nothing since even though we heard that last year was their best record for years but we suspect that the money is going across the ditch to subsidize a loss making operation over there..

    Maybe support yeah .. but companies use names loosely. Just b/c the job is called a Sys Admin, there's diff types of it. Would that be the same for a big govt dept or Telecom or Alcatel?

    If out of uni, you want a Sys Admin role, sure you may heard your university tutor got one, yep, but they got head hunted on campus because they were a top honours/masters student. And they might be working for a big international IT firm.

    Yes but its a wage.... and a job.
    Theres no shortage of IT techs willing to work for $40K . So I guess no real incentive to pay much more , especially when jobs are hard to get .

    I got 2K payrise last year. I wont get another for many many years.
