      Both have good WLB but Salesforce has better culture. Pick them. What position are they offering you?

      @OP.. I am not sure why bonus is 7%.. I have my friends as Product there they got bonus from other team because he performed really well.. I think I would be inclined to Adobe overall always heard great thing about it from friends who have worked there

    Adobe.
    Stock growth is better.
    Less commute in Bay Area is a boon.

    Did the recruiter asked you for numbers or directly gave this offer? Were you able to negotiate?

      I gave my number but they matched base but not rsu .. I think there is scope of negotiation but don’t know how to deal with recruiter.

      Even I am trying to negotiate with them. I told that I want them to give the numbers. They are asking my expectations. Have had 2 calls with no results.

    I know nothing about Adobe's culture but one thing that has disappointed me about Salesforce is the fact that’s it’s not really an engineering company.

    It feels like you’re a code monkey for an army of overpowered salespeople. I’m just really not a sales type of guy can’t stand sales culture yet here I am coding at SALESforce.

    I can’t STAND the office space it feels like a giant call center. So if you can negotiate working from home, you should.

    In every other respect though people are super nice, overall it’s a great work culture, the focus on volunteering really does become meaningful in terms of personal development even if it feels kind of pushy at times...and depending on your team it you can easily ignore the rest of the company and feel like you work at a startup.

    Pays good and stock outlook is good.

    • “Not really an engineering company”... neither is Adobe anymore! Lots of people with 6-week coding camp and are now “engineers” writing terrible code and “women in tech” who sit in HR or marcom! Adobe has become a marketing company with some software behind it.

      Adobe’s DX (experience cloud, which Marketo falls under) is a messed up LoB. DMe (digital media / creative cloud) is the better LoB to be in.

    Never Adobe. What a greasy, low ceiling, no future... awesome place to work I'm sure!

    Salesforce looks good overall.
    Check if you can work from home a couple of days a week. You can manage your commute in that case.

    No matter where you join, negotiate hard & get the max possible. It’s extremely hard to get a bump after you join.
