Jason Addicott, associate director of recruitment firm Robert Walters, said: "The responses show a significant level of unease among IT professionals. It's surprising that so many are not expecting any form of pay rise or bonus. However, there is a readiness to move jobs post-bonus, suggesting renewed confidence in the market."
Some 33% said they were dissatisfied with the structure of their remuneration packages, the survey found.
