I have a question for anyone who has recruited for, or supported a Java SW dev shop over the last 3 years...
Pearson VUE has historically NOT hired entry-level/Associate Java Developers but has begun to do so over the last 2 years. We have done this primarily through an internship/feeder program but I am concerned in doing so, we've offered wages lower than market and may run into retention/competitive pay issues as those developers grow into mid-level roles.
Basically, I'd like to offer our next group of developers more completive wages than the initial two as supported by our internal MRP data, but am concerned about equity issues with the last 2 classes of Java developers and the precedence their initial offers may have set.
I am leaning towards offering higher salaries than in the past, but not as high-as I'd like to based on the market data in lieu of our current internal equity. The higher offer amounts for our 2012-2013 developers would result in those employees being 4-6% above last year’s students.
Please feel free to respond direcltly @ matt.plitzkow@Pearson.com or via the forum. Feel free to share data from other regions as I have a geogrpahic differentail tool I can use to make the salaries roughly equivalent...
Any data, thoughts, etc are greatly appreciated!
