And yet the results of our salary survey remain remarkably similar, with year-over-year changes in most cases being statistically insignificant. Process automation employees are experienceing the same joys and disappointments as previous years. The same salary benefit and other workplace trends are holding.
That's both good news and bad news. On the good news side, pay, benefits and job satisfaction all remain reasonably good, especially when compared with other industries. Process automation has been holding its own in a very tough economy. The bad news is that apparently, the industry hasn't had much success in dealing with some troubling trends, especially the aging workforce and weakness in recruiting younger workers to the discipline.
