Depressing...

I almost always find these salary surveys depressing: it doesn't matter who does them, I'm always several thousand dollars under the median salary and a couple percent under the median raise.

For 2013, the average percentage raise was about 2% in our company and we were told just yesterday that there would be no raises for 2014 (due to the state of the industry).

I think it was Jack Ganssle who wrote that, in the embedded realm, we give up a little in salary for some job stability.  Unfortunately, I don't find that to be true, either.
