Develop recently surveyed 528 UK developers, and found that 66 percent of employees are satisfied with their current pay scale.
The average salary was found to be £30,442 ($43,087) a few thousand higher than average base pay in the UK as a whole, and that number drops £4,000 when you compare salaries between the north and south.
Northern developers not only make less, but are also provided with less training. The average northern training percentage was 74.1, while the south’s training percentage was 67 — both relatively low figures.
Still, despite being pleased with their paycheck, 26 percent of employees polled stated that motivation for looking for new work was pay-related.
In comparison, American counterparts make considerably more money. Average pay in 2007 was $73,316, down $5,000 from 2006. Pay scale runs anywhere from $20k to $100k depending on who you work for and your experience.

Sam Houser loves to be hated. He even thinks it’s an honour. He told Develop so.
“Most of the people who hate us are people it is truly an honour to be hated by – reactionary creeps with strange agendas – and the Daily Mail,” he said.
“Most people who know about modern pop culture know about GTA and like or dislike it on its own merits.”
Houser added: “I think we are both depressed at how boring we really are and how unexciting even the worse fabrications and exaggerations are when you read about them.
“None of it seems very rock and roll, so we find it a little sad, when there are probably better stories that could be written about both us and the industry/medium.
“No sharks, groupies or pounds of coke or anything fun at all. We read like angry dorks, which might be true, but is certainly not very exciting.”
