How much did Front End Salaries increase in 2023?
Front End salaries increased on average by 6% year-over-year, which is above the IT industry average of 2% in 2024. While above the national average, this year's salary increase doesn't reach the heights of the past few years. Reasons for this vary, but a major component is businesses being more cautious in spending and investments compared to 2021 and 2022.
