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.

            I think the biggest factor in this is to make sure our charts clearly that “Years of Experience” means all relevant years of experience, not just the years in this exact job title.

          • 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.

                        • Women In the Workplace: Then Vs. Now - article/infographic

                          Hello,

                          I`m Jenny, one of your readers for about a year now! I really enjoy your unique insights into women issues and business and find it refreshing to come across someone that deals with it so clearly. Apart from thanking you for some of the content I've read, I also wanted to share with you an infographic I found on Twitter that I would would fit in well with your content.

                          http://www.humanresourcesmba.net/women-in-the-workplace/

                          Hope you'll be able to use it and make it one of your great story!

                          All the best,


                          Jenny

                                        I'd like to be able to securely share my salary report (including my personal data) with my boss, spouse, mentor, etc. But, there is no way to do this.
