Any advice on how to approach salary benchmarking for a tech company? The company wants to attract and retain the best talent and are happy to be as competitive as possible. Just no idea how to start and how to present the information?

A lot of research on levels and glassdoor will give you some good averages to work off of. Also LinkedIn but I find those are the least accurate. Curious to hear what other sources people use

Probably worth getting a salary benchmarking tool like PayScale or or salary .com or purchasing pay report data from Mercer or the like to get data based on your location and other comparable factors. Glassdoor and other free things don’t offer enough granularity to give valuable data or insights for this kind of project.

I would also use- Radford for a well validated source and Glassdoor. :)

Such fantastic advice. Thank you!

Finally got a job offer to be an HR manager (I’d be a department of one) after 5 weeks unemployed of hard searching and connecting with recruiters. However, when I told them my salary range of $75-95k (my last job was 95k) they told me the budget was 65-80 which was fine. Verbal offer was $70k. I feel a little disrespected by this offer and want to counter with $80k. There’s many red flags already but UI may require I accept in which case I’m gonna keep job searching despite the salary.
