Data Center Staff Are Revolting

Although the economy is picking up, a large proportion of data center managers and their staff think they're underpaid and overworked [ed. note: and over here?].

This is one of the key findings in the final part of Enterprise Systems' Salary Survey 2004, which examines IT workers' attitudes towards their jobs. The research, which surveys staff at over 1,000 enterprises, reveals that dissatisfaction with salaries is growing.

For some time now, there have been rumblings of discontent that data center pay is not keeping pace with the current economic recovery (see Survey: Data Center Staff in the Dumps and Data Center Staff: Show Us the Money). This latest survey appears to confirm this perception. Some 34 percent of middle managers, including data center managers, are unhappy with their financial lot, according to Enterprise Systems.

But their underlings are even grumpier, with nearly 40 percent saying they are dissatisfied with their salaries. Yes, there are apparently some very unhappy campers in the big white room at the middle of the corporate network.

re: Data Center Staff Are Revolting Quit busting your ass. Give them 40 hours and go home. If they were going to get rid of you, they would have done it already. Figure out how to do just enough to keep from getting fired.

re: Data Center Staff Are Revolting The survey should also have included Data Center workers whose jobs were sent offshore, say over the past 12 months. Wonder how they feel in the satisfaction arena?

re: Data Center Staff Are Revolting I decided that I'm just not gonna go anymore. We'll see if they fix the glitch.
