MySalary.com and Associate General Counsel base salary

The website of MySalary.com presents compensation data for in-house lawyers in the United States. For example, it states that $199,361 is the median base salary for Associate General Counsel. The bell curve chart on the same webpage shows that the first decile of AGCs made $129,257 as a base salary; the first quartile figure is $162,351; the third quartile is $234,865; while the AGCs at the 90th percentile made $267,190.

According to the website, this data “was prepared using our Certified Compensation Professionals’ analysis of survey data collected from thousands of HR departments at employers of all sizes, industries and geographies.” If this data is as accurate as it appears to be, why participate in expensive compensation surveys of law departments if this level of detail can be had online for free or at a modest cost?
