"Global Compensation using CompAnalyst too in a daily basis"

What do you like best?

Comp Analyst Account Manager makes the difference, understanding my/company needs and translating to the respective Technical team to improve my / company experience and also have a year over year improvement according to the challenges we face. Also It is easy to see market data in the different countries we operate and do comparisons to take strong decisions for all compensation team (Local / Regional / Global / Consultants)

What do you dislike?

Currently we have a manual process to upload company data to CompAnalyst. It is a easy procees but I would like to have CompAnalyst creating a partnership with HR ERPs (such as Workday, SAP, PeopleSoft,... ) , getting the data direct from their cloud thru interfaces. Also, I would like to use CompAnalyst to do survey submissions, using all information.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Salary.Com bring us a great valeu, helping our decisions with a very easy way to see market data

"Salary.com - User Friendly!"

What do you like best?

I love the job levels on Salary.com. It is easy to determine jr, sr, manager, director, etc levels! The previous system we used you had to adjust the experience level manually to get the right job match and it was really tough! I like that I can easily see entry, intermediate and senior levels.

What do you dislike?

I had a hard time finding where my saved reports were. That is so far my only complaint after using the system for 6 months.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

My first thought about Salary.com was that it was crowdsourced from employees. i did not realize there was a paid site for employers to upload survey data.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are working on a brand new pay structure for our company. Our first step will be those who are paid below the market rate in order to minimize turnover.

What Compensation Management solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Director, Total Rewards"

What do you like best?

Salary.com offers a very user friendly easy to follow navigation to retrieve compensation data on a timely basis. Intuitive and designed well to provide data that is simply to read, interpret and report on.

What do you dislike?

I'd like to see more Canadian data and perhaps more in the Propane distribution market.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Try running various types of reports and searches and review job descriptions, apply filters to see how the data changes and reacts to geography, markets and revenue. Navigate through the entire software to learn more about the features that have not yet been used.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are solving salary structure review, competitive market pricing of jobs in conjunction with job evaluation. Benefits include quick validations, turnaround for our clients.

"Great system & excited for enterprise"

What do you like best?

Simple and clean search tools to show the market data for any job any where. I like that this is similar to our current set up and helps make a clean transition between their data to our manager documents.

What do you dislike?

They have a lot of jobs but I wish we could submit or request for more jobs that they may not have that we need in the legal environment. I wish the price was better since there are options out there at a lower price just not as high quality.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Very credible and easy to work with team. The data is spot on and I am excited to implement enterprise.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Problems are a few specific legal jobs that are more based on years of experience than anything else but they otherwise handle all jobs that we are looking for. We are in the process of getting the enterprise tool and we're excited to do more with CompAnalyst.

"Great tool and experience"

What do you like best?

CompAnalyst is a an ideal tool for reviewing compensation for a wide variety of positions and job families. It provides details for comparison on the job requirements and expected experience to help ensure you have a good match. It also allows you to match your internal jobs to market jobs for trending and easy comparison.

What do you dislike?

It isn't a single survey so the comparison to market doesn't include the sources, number of companies or incumbents at times. This can be a concern if the market data isn't aligning with other sources.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It has helped us align job levels in our organization as well as ensure pay is competitive. We also have utilized the geographic cuts to help understand differences as well. It has helped us ensure our base and incentive pay is competitive with market as well as our job structure / hierarchy for job families is consistent with market as well.

"Current Market compensation data at my fingertips!"

What do you like best?

I like the fact that I can drill down to the specific industry, job family, and job title to search for current salary data either in my specific metro city or nationwide. I like that there are 40 job families within my scope (which makes it much easier to find relevant salary data for my organizations's specific industry.)

What do you dislike?

It's not necessarily Salary.com's "fault", but some of our job titles are "unique" for the healthcare industry, so I'm unable to find "similar" type job descriptions and salary ranges to create a hybrid position to be able to find salary data. Perhaps adding additional "common" jobs to the Jobs list would help with this issue? For example, we have Patient Care Coordinators (who are basically Front Office Representatives), but I wasn't able to find a Front Office job within Salary.com to pull market salary data.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you have "unique" job titles for your industry, ensure that you are asking your Salary.com Sales representative for specific information for those job titles, or asking for recommendations on how to best pull the salary data that you need.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

By having a subscription to Salary.com, as the HR Manager of our organization, I'm able to pull current salary data and ensure that our organization is paying appropriately within the market. As a result, I am more confident that we are competitive when trying to hire for new positions and feel more confident when employees question their pay and I can provide them with salary data information that demonstrates they are well within the appropriate range for their position, experience, education, etc. The other benefit for me is that I am now able to create salary grades for every position within my organization and create salary ranges for my departments. Salary.com has been a huge resource for our organization!

"Salary.com is a great compensation tool!"

What do you like best?

I like the fact that I can market price/create a hybrid job (if there are 2 different job descriptions, but I can't find the exact job title I am searching for.)

What do you dislike?

I've only been using this tool since January 2019, but so far, there isn't anything I dislike about Salary.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am solving the internal pay issues I was having previously. Now, I have the ability to market price jobs specific to our industry, size, and geographical location. I appreciate the fact that their salary data is updated every 6 months, so I know the data is relevant and timely.

"It just works. I need it to work and it does. "

What do you like best?

It gives me the perfect balance of enough information that I can make informed decisions without going so deep that I get bogged down in the minutia.

What do you dislike?

They don't have some of the customizable profile settings that would make using the site a little easier. for example, I would like the ability to set my profile to review hourly rates only. I can still get that information painlessly enough but it's another setting I have to remind myself to click on every time.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It's very easy to use and as far as I know, it's the standard that everyone uses. (I know the US Government uses it)

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I could find the information I'm looking for elsewhere but when I use Salary.com, it provides consistent information across the board. (I find it less prone to individual or regional bias)

"User Friendly Benchmarking Data with Breadth and Depth"

What do you like best?

The breadth of titles and scopes that can be selected. In addition, the job matching function that is saved enables me to run my reports at any time without having to re-match positions to the salary.com data. We utilize the ability to give a % adjustment to salary.com match when the descriptions are not a perfect match.

What do you dislike?

Navigating the exported reports can be cumbersome with so much data on one sheet. Some of our company positions are not able to be matched within the salary.com data set (i.e. orbital analysts). I know the Comp Analyst can do more than I'm utilizing, I hope to get training on understanding the full capability.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Do a demo, it will be worth your time!

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have become more efficient and defensible in our compensation proposals to our Board of Directors.

"Works very well (but not perfectly) for our needs"

What do you like best?

Is easy to use. Also like their new Customer Advisory Team, where they are listening to their users, and making changes based on our requests

What do you dislike?

Doesn't include all roles in our (Mortgage) Industry, but - have seen improvements

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Carefully compare to other similar products. Others may "offer" more, but I have found they are incredibly had to implement and not worth the effort and cost. This tool works well for our needs, and has for 2+ years.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

able to realistically develop compensation ranges and truly know how we compare to competitors.

What do you like best?

I can quickly and easily find market data within my scope for jobs that are a close match to mine. I can also create hybrid jobs and look at job families. I also like the capsule job descriptions.

There are some job categories missing such as underwriting, reinsurance, loss control/prevention roles in the property and casualty insurance sector.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Check list of jobs covered before purchasing to ensure it covers jobs in your organization.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The interface has greatly improved over previous versions. Can also get a real person on the line to assist with difficult positions. The sales process was quick and easy.

"Best in the market salary database"

What do you like best?

The numbers we get are closest to what we find when we look at peer organizations. The software is easy and intuitive to use.

What do you dislike?

about 5-10% of roles we analyze are not well represented in their databases - especially true in primary and secondary education sector.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Try it out!

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We help employers to compete in their respective markets using Salary.com data. Using external market data from Salary.com means more internal equity for employees. Time efficiency - Salary.com is a lot faster and easier than pulling survey data on our own which is how we used to do things.

"CompAnalyst"

What do you like best?

CompAnalyst (a purchasable product on the salary.com website) provides compensation data on hundreds (thousands?) of positions. I find the product (web-based) easy to use to find the information I need and to customize it (geography, industry, company size) as needed.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the search function doesn't work as well as I would like. If I type in one word (part of the title, or a critical function description) it may or may not bring up all the titles with that word in it.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As an independent compensation consultant, CompAnalyst provides data on a lot of positions, easily customizable, quickly.

"Using CompAnalyst to Benchmark"

What do you like best?

Unbiased, third party data. Salary.com gives us data that we can share with our employees so they understand how we are making decisions on raises and other salary changes.

I don't see a lot of new product development. Other than that - things are good.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

"A Solid Comp Management Choice"

What do you like best?

Frequently updated data, many options, great customer service

What do you dislike?

Some of the UI changes are suboptimal, but the added options to disable/streamline default interface. My real only gripe is that when other users (I'm the Admin) create lists/scopes/etc., I am unable to edit. Global component management for admins would be a big plus.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Our current business needs don't necessitate the full suite of capabilities, but they exist, and it's well worth a look!

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This toolset has allowed us to systematize long-internal processes, as well as incorporate our affiliates.
