What do you like best?
I've had our HR department use Radford to understand market-based compensation in our industry (life sciences). The surveys are super-detailed, organized by company size, and with salary information ranging from plate washers to various technicians, to scientist levels, and to management. Equity compensation information is also included, and Radford also publishes regular newsletters on salary changes and trends
What do you dislike?
This is the gold standard - so it is priced accordingly. However, it can be a great tool in the war for talent
Recommendations to others considering the product
The level of accuracy and detail for compensation information, at least in life sciences, is unmatched. Most HR departments at the larger biotech/pharma companies have access to Radford, as do smaller VC-backed companies. Recommend this as the go-to-source.
