I see that someone posted that their company gives a $5k salary rise to staff who pass each of the Sun certificate examinations. What sort of pay increases do other companies give?

My company covers the cost of the exam--if I pass. That's it.

You're not going to get sh*t for a raise in this economy. My company pays for the exams if I pass and that's it.
Sometimes consulting firms will give you the raise because they can bill you out at a higher rate when you have more certifications. But it's doubtful with jobs few and far between now.
