The odds are good. U.S. companies will keep pay raises steady in 2009, reports a survey by Washington, D.C., consulting firm Watson Wyatt.

The survey shows employers plan to give employees merit increases that will average 3.5% in 2009, the same increase as last year.

Companies also plan bigger raises to better-performing employees. Examples:

  • Performance that exceeds expectations: 4.2% merit increase
  • Performance that far exceeds expectations: 6% merit increase.
