More salary surveys

I have a thing for salary surveys (here, there, and back then).  I will admit to using them as a gauge of how fairly I'm paid.  But I also think they're interesting because...

  • A good salary survey will break it out into several interesting data trends.  And I'm a geek for data analysis.
  • I like to see how engineers feel about their own circumstances
  • It's interesting to see how it relates to where the economy is

So, here's a couple of surveys that came out in the past month or so.  Enjoy.

Getting back to the blog

I'm getting a handle on things at my new job, so I'm looking to start posting on here at least a few times a month.  When I've come back from a break in the past, I usually create a list of what I want to post on.  This time around I'll just wing it.
