An Insider's view of PayScale

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

We pride ourselves on providing balance to our employees! Unlimited PTO, summer office closure during the week of July 4th, consistent 40 hour work weeks, etc. We believe that if our employees have a life outside of PayScale that they will be more productive, more innovative, and that ultimately they'll decide to stay with us longer :)

Director, Talent Acquisition

What projects are you most excited about?

On the sales team we're constantly innovating the ways that we communicate the value of PayScale to prospective customers. New features and products are added all the time, and it's exciting to work together to find the most effective way to let potential buyers know what's in it for them.

What’s the vibe like in the office?

It’s a beer on a bad day, a coffee on a rainy Monday morning. The ups and downs come with the stress of work and real life, but with that the true comfort of coworkers who know what’s going on and assist where they can. It’s a good place to be and a better place to work.
