Part 1: Compensation by Company & Role

The following data reflects the information submitted, by company.

If a company has missing titles/roles: a) No data was submitted with this title or b) Less than 5 individuals submitted data and results were withheld to protect identifiable information.

A number of individuals in the entry level roles did not have bonus information available due to fact that they were recently hired.  These were zeroed out.  Bonus information is averaged based on number of users that submitted an actual number greater than zero
