  1. So, having VCP(3&4), CCNP and MCITP Enterprise Administrator (former MCSE) should make be a salary of $267,535? I seriously have to renegotiate again here… ;)

  2. Unfortunately, demographics play a large part as well as type of industry you choose as well.. For example, here in the northeast US, we see perhaps 2/3 of the stated average above (if we are lucky to find a job if it’s a rural (i.e. non-metro like Boston, NYC etc) area at that – Personally, I think self-employed contractors are the ones making the biggest $, but the grass is always greener as they say! ;)
