Good information about IT jobs and salaries in USA. I had no idea about Virginia, DC, Maryland having highest computer jobs.

I find computer information research scientists salaries quite low because locally I have seen above 100K salaries for regular IT jobs..It is strange market...few make very high income without possessing engineering and masters degrees. One need to get right employer and client to get paid well in IT...negotiations are necessary.
