Salary data websites

Postby Anonymous User » Mon Feb 06, 2017 6:04 pm

Are glassdoor and lawcrossings fairly accurate? The firm I am interested is a midlaw regional firm in a major market and both these sources say this firm pays 180K. I have a hard time believing it because the practice area is generally not lucrative (i.e., government clients).

Lawcrossings pegged a firm at $135k/yr for the market I interviewed in. Salary ended up being $95k. I think it becomes less accurate when you're dealing with secondary markets.

Are they not on NALP?

Glassdoor can be accurate, but I've seen it be inaccurate many many times.

No. I just realized it pays just as little as my ID factory.

I wouldn't trust glassdoor or lawcrossing. NALP or Vault will be your best bet. Sometimes the firms put salary data on their careers page as well.
