Why This is Awesome
1. Quickly update employee records
2. Keep employee data synced across systems
3. Calculate and understand tax impact
There are two steps that need to be taken to properly integrate your HR system:
1. Connect your HRIS
2. Match employee records from your HR/payroll system to stakeholder records on Carta
Note: This is a necessary step for you to take to be able to take advantage of integrations.
Carta will now provide salary + equity benchmarks for the following engineering specializations:
You can assign an employee to an engineering specialization by:
Visiting the Employee Scorecard page for a particular employee and selecting “Edit” next to the employee’s role and then selecting “Job area and level” on the Update details page.
Note: specialization benchmarks are currently limited to DevOps + Site Reliability, Quality Assurance, and UX/Frontend for the engineering job area.
You can view benchmarks for engineering specializations by:
The compa-ratio is a quick way to compare an employee's compensation to your plan's target rate for a given job area, level, and location. The compa-ratios for an employee assigned to the DevOps + Site Reliability, Quality Assurance, or UX/Frontend engineering specializations will now be calculated using the target compensation for the specializations.
We’ve improved the employee compensation timeline to make it easier to discern between the various types of equity awards an employee has been issued.
We’ve added more than 10,000 new salary data points to our database since the last benchmark update in January. This has allowed us to significantly improve the quality of our model as we compare results to the underlying statistics. Given the increase in the sample we are able to be more granular in our modeling as we look at different job areas and types of employees (ICs and Managers vs. Executives).
While changes to the benchmarks are largely a reflection of modeling improvements, the changes will also reflect salary movements in the market since January.
This benchmark version also includes engineering specializations for DevOps + Site Reliability, Quality Assurance, and UX/Frontend.
With this benchmark update we observed larger than expected movement across several job areas, driven largely due to increased sample and refinements to our modeling, and less by overall market dynamics. Many of the decreases we observed were in valuation peer groups of $50M and below. The increases we observed were mainly in valuations higher than $50M. In both cases our benchmarks moved closer to the underlying statistics in our database.
Looking by job area, we saw the largest average increases (ranging from 6.5% - 10%) and decreases (all less than 1.5%) in the following job areas:
You can update your compensation plan to use the latest benchmark versions either by:
You will have the opportunity to preview the new plan with the updated benchmarks version and assess their impact on your scorecard before accepting the new plan.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics recently released 2021 data for US-based geo adjustments. Carta will release a May benchmark update that will include improvements to the geo adjustments within the Total Compensation product.
All Carta Total Comp customers now have access to Total Rewards.
As we make this change, all accounts need to be associated with a single person’s name.
If you’re not sure, click here for instructions on checking or updating the name on your account.
You can add people on the people page of each account by following these steps.
We cannot send MFA/2FA codes to multiple people at once.
We've updated the Total Comp permissions system with two new role types:
To add a teammate as an area lead or recruiter, go to the Settings > Permissions and roles page click on "Add User" and follow the instructions in the modal.
You will be asked to provide the teammate's email address, assign a role, select which areas that you want the teammate to have access to, and then select the highest level within those selected areas that they can view/edit. You can also change the role and permissions for an existing user by clicking on the action button (three dots) in the user table and selecting Edit user.

This is available for all fund administration customers who are on the Carta General Ledger.
You can now set the local currency for cash compensation (salary and variable) for your employees' scorecards. This new feature paves the way for better support for international employees. Target compensation for non-USD currencies will be supported in the future.
We've enhanced the leveling framework with new and updated job areas and specializations. This improvement is an important step toward expanding the scope of the Bands feature to include benchmarks for these new job areas and specializations.
NOTE: These updates do not impact your employee's target salary or equity, as they are simply improvements to the labeling system to more accurately reflect trends in job functions.
The following job areas and specializations have been added and updated. Job areas marked with an asterisk (*) are currently only available for leveling purposes and do not yet support bands. At this time, all specializations still do not differentiate bands/benchmarks from their top-level job area, however, we will soon be launching specialized bands starting with Engineering, IT, Marketing, and HR. You will be notified as soon as bands are available for these new areas and specializations.
