Following my survey on company and employee loyalty, job security, and retention, I think it'll be very useful to the community to do a survey on salary vs experience for the SQL Server world – so here it is!

This survey is completely anonymous – there is no way for anyone to know what you voted. The more people fill this in, the better!

Please fill in the appropriate survey and I'll report on the results in a week or two. Consider your total monetary compensation (salary + bonus) for 2010 and it doesn't matter what your job title or responsibilities are.

Thanks as always for participating! Please publicize so we get some good representative results.
