I find the Kelly Report (Salary Handbook) a little doubtful in view of the absence of references and list of companies where those figures were taken.
JE Consultants like me will find the data difficult to use because it will be difficult to explain if such figures were credible. Indeed, in the absence of organizational references (participating companies) per industry, anyone can say that the figures were just randomly taken out of the blue.
Besides, when we do benchmarking, we usually use the market median rates (50th percentile) and NOT the minimum or maximum rates.
The Survey Report by Gallup is more acceptable and within the universal standard format. They use the same format as The HayGroup, W. Mercer, and Watson Wyatt Total Remuneration Survey reports.

I have been working since 2001. I joined as a programmer in a typesetting industry. Worked for one and half year, and transferred to a different deptt. where my profile was to co-ordinate with all the production teams in India and PMs of UK & US. Maintaining the client site for all the upload and download and having a record for the same. Final checking of product before uploading to the client site. Overall I was working as a bridge between production team & PMs Working in UK & US. It was for 2 year & 4 months. In 2005, I became a Team leader, where I was responsible for Production, Quality & Schedule of the product. I was handling a team of 30 people. In May 2006, I was asked to work as an Astt. Project Manager for 3 international clients. All was going well...but in May 2007 there was an "Internal job posting" from HR. I got selected and joined HR as a Sr. Executive. I started learning and working under talent Mgmt. team. It was a great learning exp. and I started loving HR like anything. I wanted to make my career in HR only, but in April 2008 I got a very good offer from a different company, which I could not reject and joined as a Project Manager.
Now after 4 months, I am in a dilemma, I am not being able to get rid off my interest in HR. It is becoming very difficult, seems impossible.
From August, I am going to take admission in MBA (distance), please help me out by guiding about stream. HR or Operations??
I am also not sure about the salary in HR after doing MBA in HR with 1 year exp. in talent mgmt.
Having an impression that after doing MBA in operations I would be at better position as I am having more exp. in operations (6 yrs.).
Please... please help me out soon.
