General PayScale Feedback

Welcome to our official feedback forum. Do you have an idea? Do you recognize a good idea when you see one? We want to hear from you!

I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can vote and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can vote on it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. When searching on the site, the default country should be MY country, not the US.

    When i search salary scale, i want it only show my account country. it always move to USA.

    I just want to be searched by my country which is mentioned in my profile.

    • Allow me to compare two job offers side-by-side

      I'd like a way to compare two job offers against each other. Or my current job versus a potential new job.

      Line up the benefits, commute time, and salary... give me a tool to get clear view between the two offers.

      • Exclude impossible Years of Experience

        http://www.payscale.com/research/US/Job=Java_Software_Developer_%2f_Programmer/Salary/by_Years_Experience

        "...and released in 1995..."

        http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Java_(programming_language)

        So people with 20 or more years of Java experience is simply not possible.

        Even considering

        "...initiated the Java language project in June 1991..."

        Not even the people that developed Java have 20 or more years experience.

            • Median vs. Average

              Please explain to the person writing the job salary information that median and average are not the same thing. Basic math should have taught them this.

              • You should ask about the "value of insured risk" for insurance underwriters

                For insurance underwriters, it makes a big difference whether the item being insured is a $5,000 or $5,000,000 ship, building, etc. You don't ask about this, so I don't know if the people matched to me are the same.

                    I'd like to know how to do my job more efficently. What is the best way to take notes? What is the best way to run a meeting? What is the best way to handle email inbox overload? What is the best way to keep a todo list? What is the best software for a todo list, or is it a piece of paper and a pen?

                        • Why do I have to fill out my college education and demographics every time?

                          If I take a survey, and complete my college education information... why do I have to fill it out every time? It'd be nice if those boxes were pre-filled for me, or maybe you could just copy it over to this new survey from my old one.

                          • Include community and technical colleges in your ROI research.

                            The rankings for your College ROIs is interesting but incomplete. It assumes that the only educational option is a 4-year degree. Today, many 2-year degrees have greater earning potential. I work at Minnesota State Community and Technical College in Moorhead, MN. Most of our technical programs have placement rates of nearly 100% and starting salaries above graduates at a 4-year school.

                            • Obamacare - we`ve been there before?

                              Hey guys,
                              Checking your site I`ve seen that you spent some time on Obamacare, as well. I recently helped research for Masters in Healthcare and I wanted to recommend this content piece : http://www.topmastersinhealthcare.com/obamacare-aca/ it`s a look at Obamacare so far and how it compares to similar programs adopted in the past. I'd appreciate if you could consider it for inclusion in one of your articles and also I would appreciate any feedback or thoughts on the matter.
                              Thank you and have a great day,
                              Brian

                                Hi there,

                                Greetings from Sydney Australia. I am new to PayScale and absolutely love the concept, the engine, analysis and reporting features of this platform.

                                My question is rather left-field, and stems from thoughts about your platform doing a different sort of analysis - not on what businesses should be paying employees of a certain classification, but what they should be paying for their Telco costs.

                                Let me explain. I work in Telco currently, and there are organisations that will take a business Telco spend, analyse this against the "market" for similar organisations, with the goal of providing the business…

                                      Suggestion: Please consider adding email marketing specific titles and compensations to your site.

                                      Today there isn't a single company with 10+ employees that doesn't partake in email marketing.
