Last updated:January 2014

Editor's note

Each year, TechTarget conducts a Salary and Careers Survey to gauge where IT executives and staff stand in terms of earnings, employee satisfaction, job prospects and IT priorities for the year ahead. This year, 1,711 IT professionals took our career survey, ranging from systems administrators to CIOs, and spilled on employee and executive compensation, what keeps them content in their current job or pushes them to look elsewhere and where they'll focus their IT efforts heading into 2014.
