If a company had a posting with something like "Salary: determined individually, but definitely above industry average", would that be indicative of "open and honest"?

Nope. If the “juice” had a text instead of a price, like “Costs less than region average”, would you still have a concern? I mean, what industry? Is it actually average or median? How do you measure?

just write down that “industry average” like 80k+ EUR, is that hard?

This is language from JetBrains own postings. Surely, the same standards would apply on the rest of the web, not just in this channel?

I didn’t say we are not guilty 😞 If you can send me the link to the posting, I’d try to act on it. However, if it is not a specific open position or a job ad, but something on a general page like “jobs at JetBrains”, I think it’s okay. You can put a range there, but it would be really wide and useless for any purpose. I think for specific open positions we should be posting specific ranges, when location, role and responsibilities are known.
