  • School Pages, About Us, and Search Technology

    By Adam Phillabaum, @adamb0mb

    We released the latest version of the PayScale consumer website yesterday. Here is the rundown of what we shipped, and why it's great.

    School Pages in the Research Center

    PayScale generates a lot of really interesting reports and rankings, like our College ROI and College Salary Report. But, we've never made the school rankings available in our Research Center. So, we integrated our rankings, data from the government, from Wikipedia, and from you (our users) to create a resource for prospective students, current students, parents and alumni. 

  • The PayScale Index, now with Canada
  • Your Company, Your Job

    Your Company, Your Job

    PayScale's latest feature allows you to compare pay, benefits and work environment for job at a specific company.   We'll walk you through this feature and show you how you can use it. 

    Let's say you are interested in a job as a mechanical engineer at Ford.   These are the questions you’d have if you were looking at that job:

    • How well does Ford pay its mechanical engineers?
    • What are the benefits?
    • Are people at Ford happy in their jobs?
    • What about Chrysler? Or GM?

    To answer those questions, we created a page for our users to drill down for a specific job at a specific company.
