PSVillage Releases Compensation Study for Technology Professional Services

Base, Variable, Equity and Other Compensation Metrics Profiled

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwire - January 29, 2008) - PSVillage, the largest on-line community serving professional services and consulting services leaders, today announced the release of its study on compensation rates and practices in technology professional services. Position-based pay scales, types of compensation and compensation-impacting factors such as travel requirements, are profiled based on responses from professional services organizations in software companies ranging from $5 million to $1.2 billion in annual revenues.

The study is available for immediate download from at a cost of $75 for the individual report or $295 for a site license. Compensation is evaluated from a number of metrics with minimum, median and maximum figures provided for each category. Descriptions of different compensation plans and job descriptions are also provided.

"This information is extraordinarily difficult to get, yet so critical for budget planning, creating an organization, or even asking your boss for a raise," said Terry Jansen, founder and president of PSVillage. "We asked and our community enthusiastically responded with information they knew would serve their peers as well as the best interests of the professional services industry as a whole."

The PSVillage compensation study was sponsored by professional services industry leaders: InfoMentis, a global consulting and performance improvement company; Service Strategies, advancing service excellence by providing industry standards, certification, career development and advisory services; and Projector PSA, QuickArrow and OpenAir -- developers of professional services automation solutions. EttenAj Consulting authored the study.
