We just launched a new tool a few days ago that takes into account RSUs and the like. Overall though Manager 1 is right, it really depends on the number of reviews we’ve had. I’d say we’re on par with Levels.fyi in most titles and metro areas but not all. I personally just filter by most recent entry, because I like seeing the individual salary entries instead of a lump number.

Yes! I agree with this! it really is helpful.

Lower side as I don't think they factor RSU at all

I think it's fairly accurate for base salary from what I've found

It’s hard to say for sure… it really varies by company since the accuracy of the range depends on how many people disclose salary information. I do trust the information on there for the most part though.

I think they’ve been getting better over time, their salaries used to be way low, but nowadays it’s pretty in line with my expectations. But also agree that sometimes they don’t do a good job of estimating equity comp, but that may just be due to people only inputting base salary.

In my experience, if you ignore the extremes on either end of the scale, they're still fairly accurate. Looking at the most recent ones does help too.

For companies that are large or have large sample sizes I have found them to be mostly accurate. The smaller the sample size or org and the more outdated they are the lower they tend to be

It can not be said that it is very up-to-date, but I can say that there are generally correct results.

I know it's generally true

In my opinion, of course, there cannot be a clear result, but in general, there are results that one can have an opinion on.

Its hard to say for sure but I find that the median salary for the job is usually not too far off.
