Yeah, Salary is off on there. I've held two of the positions on there, but no where near those salaries/bonuses.

If they are talking overall average, it seems a little low. But then again, if they are including midwest farm country, government, etc. it may be accurate.

You also have to remember they are factoring in the beginning salary as well. A tech writer only makes about $40K a year starting, one here in my office is easily mid $90k's

Yup, definitely make more as a software engineer up here.

Good thing I was a computer all the way back to Elementary school. I'd like to see where all those people who made fun of me are today. Working at their Daddy's alternator shop, probably.
