Hrmmm, no results for CEO salaries. Tools like this are super useful but can be misleading. They don't accurately report benefits, equity packages, and other value implicit or explicitly given by the employer. This is genius lead gen for their recruiting business. 😊

@rrhoover thanks for the feedback. We're just getting started and due to member privacy considerations, we need at least 5 submissions to show data for a role. Hope to have enough CEO salaries soon. :) We include both base salary and additional compensation like stock, bonus, etc., and we're working on adding other features like benefits. The product was created to increase salary transparency and help members make better career decisions, and wasn't built for recruiting.

@rrhoover I was thinking the same thing. I'm in Northeastern Pennsylvania, and I have to widen my search to the Greater NYC (definitely *not* the same market) area due to lack of available data. Sharing my salary might help, but that might mean *more* emails from LinkedIn haha
Brandon Lipman@lipmanb · Platform & Content @RRE
@rrhoover Also, sample size is often incredibly small. 25 salaries is not enough to make any true conclusions.
Pravin Singh@pravin0322 · Founding Member, Applozic
@sandlerryan @rrhoover hope to see the improved version soon
Warren Sturt@warrenalfred · Head of Product at R25G.com
@sandlerryan salaries differ based on the stage of the company, pre rev/startup vs small biz, corp, etc. Anything on the roadmap to accommodate for this and break out these categories?
Jacques van Heerden@jacquesvh · Media Entrepreneur/Investor
@sandlerryan @rrhoover I believe you won't have a problem finding CEO salaries when the Pay Ratio Disclosure takes effect on 1st January 17.
Bo Wang@bluemonk482 · Researcher, AI, NLP
@rrhoover No results for Data Scientist either

@sandlerryan · Product Manager, LinkedIn
@warrenalfred definitely. Currently you can see breakout by company size when we have enough data, and are integrating these attributes further to provide more granular estimates.
Wilhem Pujar@wilhempujar · CEO at Stacktical
@rrhoover I wouldn't say genius. All modern job boards have been doing that for years, they're playing catch up :) See the french startup Breaz for instance https://techtalent.io/en (acquired by Hired)
Ryan Hoover@rrhoover · Founder, Product Hunt
@wilhempujar you're right. "Genius" might be an overstatement, but still smart. 😊
Wilhem Pujar@wilhempujar · CEO at Stacktical
@rrhoover No big deal. You know I like when you're being positive, Ryan :p
Suff@suffiyanz · Product Innovation Lead
@rrhoover Why aren't they allowing filtering based on levels? Arrggghhh!!!
Peter Skomoroch@peteskomoroch · Co-Founder and CEO @ SkipFlag
@sandlerryan @rrhoover +1 to Ryan's points. Also, no "Data Scientist" salaries either. It looks like you probably have some title standardization issues even beyond sample size limits. Might be better to incorporate skills, and other data to see salary for iOS vs Android etc.
sri@sridhar_kondoji · No Fluff Just Stuff skills tracker
@sandlerryan @rrhoover whatz the guarantee that i am providing accurate salary figure?
Lauren L Perfors@laurenlperfors · President of Lawton Digital
@rrhoover They have salaries for CEOs now.
Ryan Hoover@rrhoover · Founder, Product Hunt
@laurenlperfors ah-ha! Thanks, Lauren.
Anthony Da Mota@akdm_ · I upvote things that matters.
Mh, I am getting a 404 "Page Not Found". Do I have to be Premium or something like that?
Ryan Hoover@rrhoover · Founder, Product Hunt
@akdm_ strange. It's working fine for me but I'm in the U.S. Maybe it's region locked?
Anthony Da Mota@akdm_ · I upvote things that matters.
@rrhoover Yeah maybe it's region locked. I am in France.
Vladimir@vladimirkusnezo · Online Marketing Expert, Solidmind
@akdm_ also 404
Chad Ostrowski@chadoh · Founder, Entire.Life
@akdm_ I also get a 404. I don't have a LinkedIn account – does it only work if signed in?

@akdm_ Ryan here, PM for LinkedIn Salary. We are just launched in English-speaking countries right now, but will be rolling out to other countries soon!
Anthony Da Mota@akdm_ · I upvote things that matters.
@rrhoover Alright, it works now. You need to set LinkedIn in English in your profile settings (https://www.linkedin.com/psettings/) :) Edit: 3 seconds too late :p
Gytis Ožiūnas@gytis_oziunas · Design @ Gasefi
@akdm_ @rrhoover works fine for me. I'm in Lithuania. So it's not region locked.
Breton Novelli@bretonnovelli · Digital Strategist
@akdm_ @rrhoover i think you may need premium? it worked for me but i have premium and am in US
Breton Novelli@bretonnovelli · Digital Strategist
@akdm_ also glassdoor has the same feature FYI
Aidarbek Suleimenov@idarbek · Software Engineer
@gytis_oziunas @akdm_ @rrhoover @SandlerRyan @AkdM_ it works fine for me, I am from Kazakhstan. Profile language is in Russian.

@bretonnovelli you don't need premium fyi, the product is free.
Alex Shak@alexshak · Creative Manager
@rrhoover @akdm_ works in Australia but all the data seems to be US based.
nipac@nipac · Product Owner
@sandlerryan @akdm_ are you collecting data from any country?
Trevor Young@_tyoung · Product Designer @ Digit
Interesting timing with Glassdoor pushing their new "Know your worth" tool. https://www.glassdoor.com/Salari... Fun to see all these types of features get released as the data becomes more reliable. If you're interested in seeing salary data that isn't self-reported, in the US, all H1B Visa'd employee salaries are public via the Department of Labor http://h1bdata.info
rahulcap@rahulcap · Product
@_tyoung yes it is very interesting that LinkedIn decided to compete in this area. I can see how it's a nice 'add on' while searching for jobs in LI, but do not think they can surpass glassdoor as being a 'source of truth'. GD has just been at it for such a long time and are more focused on 'getting it right'. H1B data is interesting because it is public, but likely has its own skew.
Trevor Young@_tyoung · Product Designer @ Digit
True. I kinda assume that companies fudge titles/numbers sometimes so that a visa will be approved - but I think it's probably mostly accurate. Especially because it seems pretty consistent with other self reported data from places like Gd.
Aren't there zillions of tools like this? I'd like to see one that supports "remote" location.
Rohan A. Smith@frazras · Founder@Rastival
@sandlerryan I support the remote option as well. There are more remote workers than workers in many large cities.
Jesse Williams@j_r_wi11iams · VP of Marketing, Adjoy.
This looks interesting @sandlerryan what's the benefit of using this over Glassdoor or Comprably?
Ryan Sandler

@sandlerryan · Product Manager, LinkedIn
Hey @j_r_wi11iams. A few of the many reasons... (1) Tying salaries (anonymously) to structured data from verified LinkedIn profiles allows us to produce new and unique insights (e.g., how salary changes by degree, major, skills, etc.). (2) we have built machine learning and data mining techniques to make sure data remains accurate and reliable. (3) knowing how quickly labor markets change, we make sure our data is fresh and we only show data collected within past 12 months. You can find more details re: our methodologies at lnkd.in/salaryengineering.
