The Compensation Depot was founded by Jim Johnson (a well known veteran compensation professional
 in the Silicon Valley) who has a strong desire to apply his 30+ years of compensation plan design experience (including 
approximately seven years as an independent consultant) to resolve the compensation issues facing your organization.

Jim's approach is unique in that he:
>    TEAMS WITH INTERNAL CLIENT STAFF when possible to design, implement and maintain compensation 
programs in an effort to help develop internal compensation skills.

>    Has has broad experience with large multi-national firms as well as small firms that have no formal compensation plan(s) in place. (Note: It's never too early to start that process.) No project is too small, whether it's writing a job description or assessing the market competitiveness of a single job. Preference is also given to part-time projects of limited duration (Ideal: 2 days per week for 1 to 8 weeks with consulting time split between on-site and home office locations).

For firms temporarily without an internal compensation resource we can "bridge the gap" until your internal resource is available.We're here to give advice and assist you in resolving your compensation related issues - without billing you for simple issues requiring brief phone consultations.

Competitive Pricing
We not only do high quality work, but we do it at a competitive price because our cost structure is lower than larger consulting firms. Project work is typically billed by the hour at a negotiated rate based upon the complexity and duration of your project. We are flexible, taking into consideration your scheduling needs and budgetary constraints.
