What are salary estimates on a company's salary pages?
We know that salary is among job seekers’ top considerations when considering a job, so we want to provide even more salary information to help people find a job and company they love—helping them ensure they’re earning fair market value for their role where they live is one piece of this.
Glassdoor is leveraging its vast user-generated salary database and proprietary predictive algorithms to generate estimated salaries for select jobs within a company's Salaries page when there is no user-provided salary report. Salary estimates use a statistical method that takes into account current and recent job listings over the past year, as well as user-generated salary reports for similar job titles at the company, its competitors and other employers within the local market. The model also takes into account inflation trends. Salary estimates on company pages relate to base pay and are specific to job title, company, and location.
In the minority of cases in which our salary estimates model does not have sufficient information to provide a base salary estimate (i.e., a very niche job title in which we do not have enough related salary data), no estimate will be shown. See our What are Salary Estimates in Job Listings? article for more information.
There are currently three ways salary data may be displayed on company pages.
- When a job title has three or more salary reports from employees, the average salary is displayed.
- When a job title has one or two salary reports from employees, a salary range is displayed in order to protect anonymity.
- In cases where we have no salary information from employees for a specific job title, this is indicated under the Salaries tab on a company profile page.
