Where to find out the industry average salary?

    So long story short, the place I work at now offers no benefits and have no idea what the future holds. There are other positives which I think at the moment outperform the lack of benefits but in around one year, if nothing changes, I will be looking at leaving if we don't get either salary increase or any benefits like health insurance. I will be with the company two years.

    I like the industry though and the work itself is quite enjoyable and would like to remain in this industry. Is there a place where people anonymously share their salary scales or opinions about their companies or positions other than Glassdoor?

    You can use Glassdoor, some of the recruiting companies like Brightwater do an annual salary survey, and there's this as well:

    The other thing is, you're fairly anonymous here so you could just disclose your salary and ask what people thought from experience.

    Generally - I have found all my significant salary bumps in my career have come from moving job.

    If you're looking for more general information on industry salaries and possible roles you could move towards, have a word with a recruiter. I did this via Linkedin a couple of times. Was very upfront. Told them my experience and skillset. They told me potential roles and salaries that I could be in line for.

    I actually found out that CPL has a very good pdf document which shows vast salary scales across the range of industries. I fall right inside that bracket and I could see a potential for the future if I transition to a different area as an engineer.
