Oracle salaries expand in 2009

Even in this recession, Oracle jobs look very appealing with salaries that rival engineers and other professionals, with starting salaries as high as $85,000 with senior Oracle DBA’s commonly earning over $130,000 per year, and Oracle superstars earning over a quarter million dollars a year. 

Why so much money?  It's because Oracle is the world's most sophisticated, robust and flexible database, and those who manage multi-billion dollars databases have as much responsibility as a corporate Vice President. 

See my notes on How to become an Oracle Professional. Oracle Corporation recently published their 2015 Oracle salary survey which shows an average 2009 DBA salary of $97,000 with the highest salaries to consultants and those with lots of experience, living in high-cost areas.

The salary survey also shows that experience counts most, and jobs with the most responsibility (DBA, consultant) makes the highest Oracle salaries.
