Dr. Dobb's 2012 Salary Survey
, June 26, 2012
Our survey of nearly 3500 developers and managers shows that while many salaries are flat, they are increasing overall except for some heavily disfavored niches
Some Salaries Flat
Base salaries (but not total compensation) remained mostly flat for straight-ahead software developers and QA test engineers. Software engineers, however, saw an almost 3% increase slightly higher than inflation.
