Overall Satisfaction with PayScale Insight

We used PayScale to get market salary data to help benchmark industry and area salary information. This helped us see where our pay structure fit.

Pros

  • PayScale has been great for our organization for benchmarking market salaries and wages for our positions.
  • The service was great as well, in that we were able to send our job descriptions over to have our jobs matched with the market.
  • The market reports have been extremely helpful and are easy to understand, and being able to see a breakdown between total cash, base salary, and bonus has been great.

Cons

  • We didn't get a match for all of our positions without having to modify things a bit. That's reality, though, as we have some unique jobs that we understood might be difficult to benchmark going into it.
  • The service is a-la-carte, so our subscription didn't provide us with unlimited salary data.
  • PayScale has helped us get a better idea of how competitive our salaries are with the market.
  • Economic Research Institution
Others, such as Economic Research Institution, give us unlimited salary reports with our subscription. PayScale's reports are more customized and in-depth, however. But if you have several positions that you are benchmarking, the price can escalate pretty quickly with PayScale. We also have some more cost-friendly local options, but PayScale is good when you have multiple sites across the country like us.
PayScale is a good fit when you have in mind exactly how many jobs you want to benchmark and get data for. If you have several jobs and you're looking for salary information on all of them, the price will increase exponentially.
