I have a CCNA cert. and I work for a healthcare provider in Madisonville, Ky. We are actually a WAN because we...
have four locations in three separate towns. My question is simple. I make $25k a year in my current position. Is it normal for a CCNA with two years of experience and a network this size to have this type of salary? There are only two of us that maintain this network, which includes Cisco IP Telephony and AVVID technology. Thanks for your thoughts. Dear Scott: When it comes to this kind of thing, salary survey results speak much louder than opinions, however expert. Thus, let me point you to a CCNA salary survey in... TCPMag.com (the official Cisco professional publication). SearchNetworking.com also has a salary survey that allows you to get instant results that are tailored to your needs. You can sort the results by gender, title, salary, industry and more. I think you can draw your own conclusions from the numbers you find there. The real question then becomes: can you get your management to buy into these numbers? Good luck! --Ed--
