I am trying to figure out whether my salary is what it should be and was curious where people go to find salary information? I have looked at Indeed and Salary.com. Both looked like the salaries were higher than I expected, so I wasn't sure if those were the best sites.

I am a software engineer living in Boston with about ~9 years of experience making low 90's. I would consider myself an above average developer. When typing this information into Salary.com it says that average person with 8-10 years makes 130K. Hence, I am trying to figure out how to get accurate information.

I have had a lot of success with Glassdoor and found the salaries to be directionally correct. Just be careful when researching companies that employ throughout the US as salaries will vary depending on cost of living.

  • Yes, when looking at GlassDoor salaries, there is a dropdown at the top that allows you to filter the results by city specifically for the reason of differing average salaries based on location. – Garrison Neely May 5 '14 at 16:08
