Was running a HRIS business with my wife when I received my CISSP back in 2005. No, did not get a raise nor did anyone care about the CISSP back then. Hardly mattered.
There have been a couple of articles relating to the demand of "CISSPs" in the workforce - particularly last year. I would search out compensation (comp tables) through Google. For example: 2015 compensation for CISSP yielded: Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) Certification Salary, Average Salaries | PayScale
Much of what your reading about and in demand are the seasoned, 10 plus year security people. Those are the folks who are most in demand and gathering the big Y-O-Y (Year-Over-Year) raises. Takes time.
