I've heard the samething. And it's not just banking there's at least one
organisation in town that has its payroll system on something in written
Cobol of all things.
To get back on topic. It'd be interested in any info on peoples
experiences salary wise even from past jobs. I think that the original
poster in dreaming and what a nice dream a salary like that would be.
Almost enough to make me move to the US...almost.
You right about the industry being the determining factor in salaries,
but the industry will quite often have an excepted list of languages
which you can use. If it's not explicitly stated it's at least implied.
So if you wish to use a cool language you may be limiting yourself in
your industry choice. They have to make you suffer to justify paying
you, it's important to be seen to be busy not to be productive :-).
