TechTarget's 2014 IT Salary and Careers Survey infographic

Is it time to play the technology field? Find out in TechTarget's 2014 IT Salary and Careers Survey infographic, which indicates fatter paychecks and increased optimism.

TechTarget's 2014 IT Salary and Careers Survey left no salary question unturned when it came to polling our IT audience on their information technology jobs and  corresponding paychecks -- because who doesn't want to know what their technology peers take home? 

But the survey results tell a grander tale than simply who made what working where. The 1,200 IT professionals who weighed in provided information on the state of their IT budgets, whether their IT headcounts are going up or down, the general mood in their organization, and what project efforts and technology priorities will guide their enterprise efforts in 2015. The overall results indicate that optimism is on the rise -- in line with increasing IT budgets and headcounts -- and security continues to be not only an area of concern, but a project focus. Below, learn how your IT peers view the technology landscape in 2014 heading into 2015, and you'll be well on your way to taking the corner office.

What is the mood in your IT organization heading into 2015?
The mood in my immediate organization is that we have way too much work to do and not enough people to do it. Frankly, that's both awesome and frustrating. Awesome because it means that the opportunities to learn, branch out and take on responsibilities and be even more viable are numerous. Frustrating, because it means that we often end up having to deal with many issues short handed, and lots of us end up wearing a bunch of hats, and sometimes of of those hats at the same time. Overwork, lack of focus, and a broad reach with a superficial depth are possible results. Having said that, it beats *not* working (as in not being employed) any day of the week ;).
We are still expanding. New technology is moving forward and at a faster pace everyday. Makes for a fun and exciting workplace.
If those figures are even close to the truth... It may be time to look else where. I'd be curious to see it broken down more by region as well. You would need to compare these to the cost of living.
