Much bigger than you could in 2007. I started to prefix that with 'Sadly', but perhaps it is a good thing. Nevertheless, Sigh! Not sure I believe in salary increases in the long-term. It may be that companies have cut all the people they think they should of and now are desperate to keep those identified as worth keeping. (I could be very wrong on this as I am not senior management and they rarely consult with me.) But, long-term India and China are producing lots of engineers at least some of which are or will be good enough to compete with US engineers. As so many articles have pointed out, when manufacturing goes overseas, much of innovation will occur overseas. It is interesting that Intel and a few better run companies do not send manufacturing overseas.

"The response rate for Electrical/Electronics Engineers is too small to disclose." Guess there's a good reason for that -- unemployment.

IEEE has a salary calculator. What does that say? Has anything been posted?

The answer I just got was: "The response rate for Electrical/Electronics Engineers is too small to disclose. However, tech professionals in the Computer Hardware industry overall did see a pay raise, up five percent year/year to $78,789 on average."

I requested a chart :) But that was the only one they distributed with the report. Hopefully I'll have an update for you soon!

The rise seemingly shows the demand of these skills due to the change of business in the valley. In the last few years, there are more social networking startups opening than ever before. The demand of certain skills would be high. What about the other engineering professions? It would be nice if similar study is done to hardware engineer's, system engineer's and system administrator's.

The chart in this article shows the salary rise for the software engineers. Any good news for the folks in electronics?
