Follow me on:

Are you wondering about what jobs sound interesting and which companies you might want to work for? Do you want to know what one of those jobs at one of those companies could pay? If so, take a look at Glassdoor.com. It's a brand new site brought to you by founders of Expedia and Zillow.

Information includes reviews, ratings, company information, salaries, CEO approval rating, competitors, content providers, and more. Take a look at a few Glassdoor.com Reviews and you'll get the idea:

Glassdoor.com registered users (it's free and anonymous to register) can contribute an employer review or salary report.

This is an interesting new site. It's simple and easy to navigate, and it's an excellent way to get inside information on companies you might want to work at, including how satisified the employees are, what they see as the pros and cons, and how much they are earning.

Too many sites with the same idea. How can you believe that the salary information entered by visitors are the real number? Jobs-Salary.com has much more accurate salary information about companies.

Alison,
Great posting and keep up the good work! Actually I feel Glassdoor.com is better than PayScale.com with some company review information. The cons for both sites are required to sign on with a lot of personal information before you can get into the salary information. This is the reason I like JPSData.com. Easy navigation and a few clicks quickly narrow down the target.

http://www.jobeehive.com is doing this for over a year now. Moreover, it has a professional network attached to it.

Very interesting to see new salary site. It will always be helpful with more information. From Salary List for Real Jobs , you can see the employment conditions differently, Google Salary is $15,000 higher than Yahoo, and Microsoft Salary, professor salary is good (>$100k), attorney salary is better, over $120k.

http://www.8hours.com is another good site in this space. The best part is easy navigation. Apart from reviews and salaries, has layoff information as well.

I have always found salary and company reviews on JobeeHive.com to be very helpful. In fact it was through Jobeehive that I secured a really good Job.
