Glassdoor Economist Pay Overview

What is the pay outlook for Information Technology?

Overall demand for information technology workers will continue to grow as companies increasingly rely on data and technology. Individual job outlook varies by profession; demand for more specialized jobs, like cybersecurity analysts, is expected to grow significantly, while other jobs are vulnerable to outsourcing. IT jobs, which are particularly well-suited for remote work, usually require higher education or certifications and offer higher than average salaries.

EY

How common is it for an employer to pro-rate a salary increase if you joined in middle of the year? For context, annual raises are given out in July each year. I joined in January. Normally, I would be getting an 8% raise, but because I came in at about the half year mark, they giving me ~4%. My jaw about just dropped when big boss said this. I mean, inflation doesn't pro-rate. Thoughts on this?
