Survey Says…

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.

The price is more than reasonable.Ricardo C.Associate Vice Chancellor for Human ResourcesTarrant County College
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

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
