Compease overview

What is Compease?

Compease is fully automated and allows you to professionally manage your organizations salary administration with ease and confidence. Designed to ensure position salary ranges are market-competitive with the ability to attract and retain top talent.

Compensable factors allow easy job comparisons, including unique hybrid positions. Compease also ensures organizations can quickly see the actual base salary data of all employees within the same salary range and identify areas where differences in actual base salaries are not easily explained.

Each position carries a point value that is based on 1) external market data and 2) an internal ranking based on compensable factors such as experience, education, organizational impact, etc.

Pay underpins the culture of organizations and it is also of top interest to the majority of the workforce. Fair practices are important to employees and just as important to employers - Equal Pay for Equal Work!

It's a great product and the customer support is great. I do have a couple of suggestions.

Pros
It is extremely intuitive and user friendly, easy to navigate and the customer support is fantastic.

Cons
I think technological skills should be a scoring factor. I would also like more control over the reporting functions (although this has been improved recently).

Functionality of software provides confidence in pay structures

Total compensation is a large driver in employee engagement, so having a good grasp on the largest piece of that puzzle is instrumental in our business. This software helps me to keep moving our pay practices forward so that we remain competitive in our markets.

Pros
The Compease system is easy to use and helps me to be confident in the pay structures we offer to employees. It quickly calculates compa-ratios out by employee, helps us to determine pay structures for hybrid jobs that don't have an apples-to-apples comparison in the industry, and allows us to manage multiple pay structures. We have separate structures for exempt, non-exempt, and executive pay, as well as exempt and non-exempt IT structures that have a similar scoring process with different weights applied. It helps me to analyze the data in multiple ways to make sure that we have sound pay practices at the Credit Union. We also are able to develop our merit matrix and run it against current pay to quickly see what the overall impact will be to budget and compa-ratio if the merit matrix solely is used for increases. Being located in eight states, I also like that I can monitor pay practices in other locations to make sure that we are paying competitively in each market.

Cons
Compease uses a wide variety of data points for determining salary ranges to use, however we do not have direct access to the results of those surveys. It would be nice to see some actual ranges for the positions, if they were to pay higher or lower in the ranges throughout the market.

Ok Compensation Solution

Used weekly for 6-12 months

Review Source: Capterra

It is just ok. There are a million payroll/compensation solutions and this is about the middle of the road. If I had been in position when this was selected, I would have advocated for a different solution.

Pros
I really like the merit increase planning tool. That definitely is a time saver and helps to streamline our process flow. The projections tools are helpful as well, especially in budget crunch times.

Cons
It is advertised with "robust" data analysis tools. I certainly wouldn't consider this solution as "robust." It's just ok.

Review Source: Capterra

The Compease system allowed us to evaluate our staff positions using a consistent approach and methodology rather than the home-grown system we were using. Due to the consistency of this product, for the first time we felt confident in posting the staff salary grades and salary schedules for access by our employees.

Pros
The ease of use by both our supervisors and the HR staff, as well as the consistency it brings to the evaluation of our staff positions. We also like that the software is now Cloud-based rather than PC-based allowing you to access the system from anywhere.

Cons
In the Job Master section, sometimes the slider bar which allows you to quickly access positions on the list doesn't show up.

Market based salary ranges that are internally equitable - perceived by the employees as being fair.

Pros
Cloud based - very user friendly. The software solution provides market based salary ranges that are also internally equitable - helps convey the fairness of the system. The Compease team is very skilled and helpful - we love the system!

Cons
For Native American tribes that have a different minimum wage than their geographic location, Compease isn't able to accommodate this difference.
