What data do we use to evaluate your offer?
When we evaluate your offer letter, we use the data submitted by other users to inform that analysis. Because we do that, we can provide a high degree of precision and detail. We use our Big Five framework to comprehensively assess every aspect of your offer, because even well-meaning people posting to the free sites may not understand the exact value of the more complex elements of their compensation.
We also break everything down in an apples-to-apples comparison. Every company has their own unique approach to compensation plans, and while most fit into standard models, it can still be hard to accurately compare them.
Lastly, because we use offer letter data, we know it’s correct - and you can rely on it to be correct, too. Self-reported online data have three major issues that we’re able to avoid:
Using offer letter data, and other company-provided documentation, avoids all this, and that’s why rely on it for our offer assessments.
In return for that precise analysis, we also anonymize your offer to inform the evaluations of other users who come after you. We think of it as a pay it forward model - you’ve been helped by the people who came before, and now you’re contributing your data to help, in some small way, to those who will come after.
