Folks,

Predominantly for folks in the US:

What do you look to pay a starting programmer (with no ProIV experience)?

Feel free to response privately

Thanks in advance

Joseph,

I would be interested to know myself. Also - what do good, experienced PROIV programmers reasonably expect as a salary (employment, not consultant). Joseph, if you get private responses, could you post generic information. Thanks.

Lew

Lew,

The following input was offered in one private message:

Pro-IV is not seen as mainstream/sexy to some programmers starting off a career ... if your new hire is good and productive then just be sure to pay him whatever he would be paid if for example he was offered similar job in a nearby Java development firm. If hes really good then maybe pay him above the average to ensure he does not jump ship to a Java job etc as this would waste your time and effort training him up on Pro-IV and your system etc ...


I've not yet received significant input in terms of salary dollars...

Regards,

Joseph

Darren has said in the past that he is training some of his Java team in PROIV. Yes I agree that PROIV not being mainstream is a bit of an issue - but I think less so since the advent of SSO and Open Client. When we go looking, I think a solid Java background will lend itself well to a happy PROIV employee - and keep us platform independent.

Lew,

Just to be clear: The comments about ProIV vs Java were not mine.


We are very excited by what we are seeing with Open Client in our testing in house. It really looks like it add a substantial deployment / administration / marketing advantage to our product line.

Best Regards,

Joseph

It could also be that there hasn't been a newbie hired into a Pro-IV job in the last 10 years.......

Just a thought....

That's interesting Glen, as I have personally trained 6 at Tower Hill in the last 2 years....
Things should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler
