Open Salaries at Buffer: Our Transparent Formula and All Our Salaries
UPDATE November 25, 2015: We have a brand-new salary formula and an updated, searchable list of all our salaries. Find it all here! When we first established the Buffer values that we wanted to have as the center of our company culture, we knew that sticking to these ideas would be an incredible challenge. Especially since we’ve seen before that these values can easily end up being little more than a set of words written on a piece of paper. In our culture deck, the second value on our list at Buffer is “Default to Transparency.” With this point especially, we started to think about everything we do within the company and how we could change it to something more transparent. Sticking to radical transparency was probably both one of the most frightening and exciting things to do over the past months. From the examples above, I often reflect on the power of transparency. Another thing that happens when you default to transparency is that it breaks down barriers within the team drastically.
