In Light Reading's 2011 Fall Salary Survey of more than 2,500 telecom professionals, including 700 service providers, we learned that stabilizing salaries weren't enough to restore optimism in the communications industry.

Though the full 11-page report is available here for registered users, we'd like to make the raw questions and answers available to you as well. Before we kick off our third annual salary survey later this year, please enjoy this slide show recap of the October 2011 survey.

Not actually on this specific slide show, but is it only me who gets really fed up of having to scroll down on every new slide to see it in full, or am I just missing something.

re: Telecom Salary Survey Slide Show


Our slide shows usually don't require scrolling but, frankly, we can still do better. Our tech team is working on a much slicker presentation that's closer to what you'd see on a photography Web site, with higher resolution images and a much better overall navigation. I'll update you soon on how this is going. 


Also, we're about to send out a reader survey soon that canvasses folks like you to give folks like me a list of stuff to fix in our content as well as our navigation, presesntation and so on. Please look for that and don't hold back.


In the meantime, I'm at harvey@lightreading.com. Don't be a stranger.

Please avoid using "Telecom Salary" and "Slide" in the title.  It scares people who don't read linearly.

Thanks Phil for this presentation. Although there is not much difference between 2010 and 2011, but 2012 will see a lot of headcount reduction, employee dissatisfacion increasing etc. You could have added organization wise pie chart containing optimism among emplyees for their organization like % of employee expecting growth, salary increase , etc.


Also looking forward from lightreading some comparitive charts among big  Telecom Vendors related to WORLD LTE MARKET SHARE,  REGION WISE LTE/3G MARKET SHARE, PROFIT/LOSS IN FINANCIAL YEAR ETC.

re: Telecom Salary Survey Slide Show


One thing I found interesting is the relationship between slides 11 and 12. In 2010 38% of respondents picked a staff increase for the next year, and 15% a decrease. Previously they had experienced a 35% increase (very close) and 29% decrease (quite different).


In 2011 the actual increase was 39% (almost exactly as estimated) while the reduction was 28%, the same as the previous year, but far off estimation. However people were still optimistically predicting only a 16% reduction for 2012.


In effect, good news (staff increase) is known in advance, bad news (staff decrease) sneaks up quietly, even if people have experienced it before.


At least job satisfaction and pay have increased the past couple of years.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
