payscale.com

If you're looking for a job, this site might be interesting. Though I'm happily employed, I was curious what would come up. For almost every category I was in the 50% percentile. The only differences were my salary was in the 77 percentile and I don't have profit sharing or a commission.  I have a pretty specialized industry, but if all jobs have just 23 people reporting the data can't be that trustworthy. Anyways, here's the summary.
