C’est via un twitt de Vanina  qui pointe vers Techcrunch  que je prends connaissance de l’existence de Glassdoor.com , cette startup qui dévoile les dessous salariaux des grandes entreprises TI et des dirigeants qui les mènent. Au moment d’écrire ces lignes, le site était indisponible, sans doute dû à l’effet Techcrunch (mais peut-être ont-ils le même hébergeur que Twitter ?).
The idea behind Glassdoor is simple: You tell me your salary, and I’ll tell you mine. (…) The site collects company reviews and real salaries from employees of large companies and displays them anonymously for all members to see. (The startup plans to make money from ads targeted at job seekers, premium services, and aggregated compensation data it wants to sell to HR professionals).
The idea is to collect as much detailed salary information and feedback for every job title at a company so that job seekers can know how to evaluate an offer, and current employees can see how they are doing relative to their peers. “When the annual compensation review comes,” says CEO Robert Hohman, “you need to know what your market value is.” Or you can just live vicariously through others.
