Salary Slap
Training, v47 n6 p32-37 Nov-Dec 2010
According to "Training" magazine's annual Salary Survey of 867 readers, training salaries took a big hit in 2009-2010, plunging an average of $2,334. The average increase in salary in the last 12 months (not including a promotion or change of employer) continued to nosedive, coming in at 2.43 percent in 2009-2010 vs. 3.08 the year before. Respondents were split on their feelings about the fairness of their compensation: Some 45 percent said their salary was low relative to their responsibilities, while another 45 percent said it was equitable. Some 50.6 percent of respondents said they received a bonus last year, and 56.2 percent are eligible for one this year. The average cash bonus was $12,897, down from $13,964 in 2008-2009. Despite the tough times, though, most training professionals still enjoy their jobs, with 73.8 percent saying they would not choose another career.
