Survey Says…

The salary surveys compiled by Compdata Surveys are a valuable tool we use to stay current with market data. We are a non-profit and Compdata Surveys has provided data on some positions that are hard to find. The customer service is also phenomenal, and the cost is reasonable for what is provided. I would highly recommend them to any type of organization as they have comprehensive surveys for all industries and several ways to break out the data!Deb S.Director of Human ResourcesNorthwestern College
Our industry is unique since we operate several types of companies all under one roof and have locations all over the country. Compdata Surveys is one of the only trustworthy resources available to get me the survey data my company needs when we need it.Aileen C.Director of CompensationAmeristar Casinos, Inc.
I love Compdata!  I trust them to have accurate data and use them in my current position as HR Director for a defense contractor.  I used them previously when working for a major manufacturer.  Their customer service is excellent, they are efficient and thorough, and they go the distance when you need information quickly or in a specific format.Paula S.Sr. Director, Human Resources FNH USA, LLC
Compdata Surveys’ results are an invaluable source of market data. Its comprehensiveness in terms of jobs, geographic scope and drill-down features are what we need to do relevant analyses. It provides every scope indicator and compensation statistic to make this one of the best surveys in our basket. In times when companies are watching every dollar, I never question the value of this product.Dennis E.Sr. Compensation AnalystMunson Medical Center

We use Compdata Surveys and the non-profit sector data to make sure we are on target for our new exempt positions and job offers. We use it almost weekly if not more frequently. A must for HR Directors or HR managers engaged in comp studies or salary recommendations. The price is more than reasonable.Ricardo C.Associate Vice Chancellor for Human ResourcesTarrant County College
I was so excited to find your market database. I’ve worked for large manufacturing companies where surveys were a huge cost. I’m at a smaller company where we want to build a market-based pay structure, and you have no idea how long I looked for you! Your pricing is incredible for the amount of data you provide. I’m just thrilled I can go out to my organization with credible, targeted data without having to pay another survey company 10 times what your data costs.Andrea O.Vice President, Human ResourcesPLZ Aeroscience
We have been using Compdata Surveys for a number of years and plan to continue to utilize their services. It’s a great survey that includes many of the titles in our organization and is very valuable to us in our ongoing compensation and benefits analysis. I highly recommend using Compdata Surveys!Laura W.Employment SpecialistHerbert, Rowland & Grubic, Inc.
