    It's hard to say there are certain factors.  3 years in any field especially IT doesn't always get you a great hugh salary.  60K is not bad in my mind.  As i said there are certain factors.

    1.) how long have you been in industry - im guessing thats what 3rd yr means - 3 years
    2.) where is location - you say NY - what part of NY it makes a difference
    3.) what is you schooling - degree - certifications - etc
    4.) what is your experience
    5.) how many employees - you said 40
    6.) how elaborate is network - you sorta answered - how much is your responsibility
    7.) travel involved
    8.) Overtime - oncall?
    9.) managing anyone?
    10.) im sure theres more

    if you can get 60k after 3 years in yr job, stay where you are!
    unless the price of life is much higher in NY than in the rest of USA, but apart from yr flat, I doubt it.

    Is this a contract for 3 years?
    If it is I think it's low. very low.
    If permanent maybe. The technology is common stuff.

    Accepted Solution

    permanent means that you could work there for 30 + years and retire from the company someday.  Or is it contract as in your may work there for 1 month, or 1 year, or 10 years just doing certain projects and when those projects are complete then you are out of the company and on to the next job / company.
