There's some good news in this year's salary survey. Salaries are up (a little), bonuses are up (a little) and the effects of layoffs, hiring freezes and outsourcing are all down -- a little. And training budgets look as if they may be coming back a bit. If you're like me, these small gains are something to be happy about. We're not back in the boom times of the late '90s, when, if you could spell computer, you were qualified to be a developer or a tester or, even worse, a manager. And between the slight increases in hiring and training and the decrease in layoffs, the current jobs may be more interesting to employees and more valuable to employers.
