Simular trends in Australia. Good article and very good advice. Work in a smaller company, enjoy your job and your co-workers, and remember that life is short.

Interesting to note Steve's opinion that a senior SQL DBA should be on 90000USD.

XE.com tells me that, at today's prices, that is 49182GBP. Based on what I know about the UK job market I would say that that is the minimum a Senor SQL DBA worth their salt should expect. Perhaps I'm wrong.

I should state the caveat that I live and work in London and salaries here are generally higher than the rest of the country (an issue that you don't want to get me started on) so perhaps my opinion is "tainted" by this.

Interesting article anyway, thanks Steve.

Nice article. Thanks for sharing that information. I particularly liked the conclusion.

Great article Steve.

I agree with nileshsane - the conclusion rocks!

I would add it's possible to work for a large corporation and still enjoy the benefits of a close-knit, entrepreneurial-like team. It all depends upon management.

Something important to note about government-published unemployment rates is that those numbers do not include people that have given up. Not to dredge up the work visa thing but there are many areas that have been hit pretty hard with cheap visa labor and these job markets are just not hiring. Were the unemployment rates that IW published from their own study?

Great article (as usual) Steve - a few things that caught my attention were:

1)"...those with certifications made 7-19% more on average.." - hmmm! It'd be good to get some real numbers on that kind of survey and verify the truth behind it...may help dawdlers like me sitting on the fence about certification !!!

2) "Range by metro area were about what I expected with a surprise. SF, DC, NY at the top, but Denver was above LA. Atlanta and Phoenix and Florida were absent, a few areas that I expected to see. Minneapolis was included at the bottom, which seemed like the best bargain. If you like cold weather."...

Steve - what do you mean when you say that Minneapolis seems like the best bargain when it was "included at the bottom"...is it because living expenses are cheaper there ????

3) "rookies tended to make about the same as veterans on average. Now that doesn't seem right unless they are counting rookies as people new to the company. Lots of job changes in the last year have some highly paid, highly experienced "rookies" at new companies."...I do know of rookie rookies who make almost as much as the experienced rookies...yes, it's not right but it happens a lot!!!

Oh yes - and that last bit about "Work in a smaller company, enjoy your job and your co-workers, and remember that life is short." - think that touched a chord in all of us...

Jamie,

Out of curiousity, can you tell me what portion of the 49182GBP would be left after income taxes (or do you not have any taxes withheld in the UK?).

Steve,

Err....I'm more one of these people that accepts their pay packet rather than analyses it but...

According to 1 reputable source:

  • 10 per cent on taxable income up to £2,090
  • 22 per cent on taxable income between £2,091 and £32,400
  • 40 per cent on taxable income over £32,401
  • That includes National insurance contributions.

    By my reckoning that would leave you with a take-home of about 35801GBP from a salary of  49182GBP!!
