Ranges of DBA Salaries

The IOUG survey found that 28 percent of DBAs have six-figure base salaries, while another 47 percent are pulling in between $80,001 and $100,000. There were significant differences in the pay ranges between small and large organizations. A third of DBAs in organizations with 10,000 or more employees made over $100,000, compared with only 20 percent of those in organizations with 1,000 employees or less.

Being a database professional isn't easy, but it can pay well. So says a survey of 503 members of the Independent Oracle Users Group conducted by Unisphere Research. Those surveyed included database administrators and IT managers as well as database developers and analysts. As the IOUG survey shows, certification and experience can go a long way toward making that extra buck.
