According to the latest polls, the tech sector is growing - a refreshing sign after the financial crash in 2008 that stunted the IT field. The 2014 Robert Half Salary Guide shows that IT salaries are up 5 percent over 2013, while project manager roles saw a 6 percent salary hike. Furthermore, developers saw a 7.1 percent salary increase and mobile app developers an impressive 7.8 percent rise.
Salaries aren't the only aspect of the tech sector on the rise either. The report indicated that hiring is growing more aggressive, while firms are offering more benefits and perks - like free housekeeping - to attract top talent.
