    Is'nt the salary scale a little on the low side ?


      which exact postion were you refering to Zman? Then I would be able to tell you better if it is or not.

      anyways, I hope to update these postings every so often so that people can see whats available.


        Just in general. I just randomly clicked on 3 to 4 links and the average salary is about 50k. They were offering a little less money for the requirements they wanted(for the ones that I saw).



          Having sticker shock of the wrong kind?
          Yaar thats the typical salary ... its not a low salary. Most of the jobs in the big institutions dont pay a whole lot. just that you get quite a few fringe benfits for a 9-5 job... It also depends on where you are located and how much experience you have.. was there a specifc reason you were checking out these links? may be if you there is something specif then I can help you out better.


            I kinda keep up with salary trends in the US, especially when my review is around the corner.

            Thanks for asking though


              Are you in the Sustainable development field?
              There are various sites that will give you an average salary for your type of job that i could dig up for you if you are looking at other fields.


                Actually I am a consultant in the IT field. Points of interest are Java, VB, ASP and Power builder


                  ohh ok
                  then Indeed the salaries you would see here would be much lower then the IT field. Our profit margins are generally in the low teens I believe .

                  For a survey of salaries in your field, i suggest you try out the school websites (if your a recent grad (I have used MIT and Stanfords and they give good indications of the two costs). For more experienced jobs try some of the regular job websites. They should have such info. Perhaps other people here could also give you a good indication of the expected salaries.
