i work in technology and i can tell you that most of the tech jobs listed and their budgeted salary is why people in tech hate going into government. you get paid nearly half what a private sector job would pay and you have to fight 10 times harder to get budgets to work on projects. whoever takes that CTO job better have the patience of a saint.

I wonder if someone at city hall monitors or occasionally reads the posts in JCList. I find it interesting that they got rid of the ridiculously low salary range previously posted for the CTO/CIO position and now have a more accommodating "Competitive salary based on qualifications and experience. " That is much more realistic. But, I do have to wonder, how politically feasible/realistic would it be for City Hall to pay their CIO a salary that would dwarf that of the mayor. There is no way a competent CIO can be had for 120K. I think a salary closer to 200K would be necessary to attract a good, top notch candidate. Can the mayor and city council swallow that pill? I wonder.

BTW, thank you jerseymom for posting this information!

These jobs have apparently been filled (and yeah, great work keeping the site updated, HR and IT teams). So, apparently, they found people to work for those wages.

Either they found some people interested in those salaries or decided to just not hire anyone.

The fact that the information on the website is so dated is not encouraging.



This is what happens when you cheap out when hiring IT people. You end up with crappy systems that do not deliver on their goals.


Man you should see what the federal government does. They pay for new systems that are total garbage since lowest bid and then have to pay more money to the contractor they bought it from to fix it, LOL! And it always cost a couple of million more than was originally estimated.

It is a guarantee if you sign up for these government jobs now, you will not get the pension promised at the end of the day. The pension system is unsustainable.

Therefore you can't give it much consideration when making your job choice. If you do you will be very sorry later on.

Competent server techs make quadruple that in this area. The benefits can't bridge that gap. Even the plumber entry is a joke. Helpers make more than that. A real plumber is at least triple that, IF the benefits are golden.

The only jobs with halfway decent ranges are the office and outside staff. The rest are in wishful thinking land. Actual real engineers or qualified tech workers will not work for that pittance.

-1

Even when you factor in the "perks" of government jobs (job security, pensions and benefits) the salary being offered (for IT-related jobs) are not competitive, or comparable. The salaries listed are about half for the same job in the private sector.

Server tech at under $35K? Good luck with that. That's not even Help Desk salary level.

Good luck trying to find a Chief Technology Officer by offering between 75K and 125K!! I work in the field, and that salary wouldn't get you a good employee for a staff-level position.
