Werken voor Google of Facebook, dat betekent veel geld en een werkgever die je in de watten legt, toch? Ja, maar er zijn ook nadelen.
There’s no question about it, working in the tech industry can be a high-paying job filled with perks and benefits.
But there are some big downsides to the job, particularly for IT pros — the folks in companies that oversee employees’ devices, networks and apps.
Several recent surveys document the ways in which IT pros are unhappy. These include a survey of 5,000 people from TinyPulse, an HR service that attempts to prevent worker burnout; a survey of 214 people from SolarWinds, known for its huge social network for IT professionals; of 23,000 from job-hunting site Dice; and of 4,900 from IT magazine Computerworld.
3. The war for tech talent is driving up salaries but not satisfaction with salaries. About half of IT pros surveyed feel underpaid these days, a feeling on the rise over the past couple of years, even while they feel good about their chances for getting a new job.
7. Just under half of IT workers surveyed said that had a great-to-excellent relationship with their co-workers (a 9 or 10 on a 1-10 scale). That’s not bad, but it’s still under par.
