69993.strip Salary survey results   are YOU being paid enough?

 (Used with permission from Dilbert.com)

Following on from the survey I did about what your company is doing for you and vice-versa (see Job security, loyalty, and employee retention: you need to take control), people asked for a salary survey – so I complied a couple of weeks ago (see here for the survey).

The results show a very wide range in salaries for all ranges of experience. Bear in mind that salaries will vary not just because of experience, but also because of responsibility, full-time vs. contractor, regional cost of living, and other things.

Of course, the only person who can accurately gauge whether you're being paid enough is you but this at least gives you a rough idea of how the DBA community is being paid and how your salary stacks up against those of other people.
