IT Department FAQs

  • How will we review compensation across the IT organization?

We are all interested in making sure that total compensation is both equitable within the organization and competitive with the marketplace. To this end we’re initiating the development of more specific IT job families that will enable us to better benchmark salaries internally and externally by creating more specific titles than are currently available. Some of you will be asked to assist in the development of the new job families and we will provide updates in the coming year as we roll out the program.

For a high-level summary of the UC job families initiative, you can review this presentation.

It’s important to note that under the current title codes (ie. Programmer Analyst IV) the salary ranges are very broad and not all positions within title code are the same for the sake of evaluating internal equity. So, it’s not accurate to simply compare all positions across current title codes.
