Salary Information

Glass Door

Established in 2007 by the always-innovative Rich Barton (the same person who founded the Expedia travel Web site and Zillow, the real estate research site), Glass Door takes an all-new approach to the issue of salary research. In return for users anonymously posting their personal salary information — or a review of their company — they get access to the salary information posted by all the other users of the site.
