    Salesforce charges 500k for their program architects to a client like Amazon. So if your friend has double digit years of exp, this is way low...

      Yes, but it is a consultant type role. But I for sure could see Amazon having 1 or more of these with their Salesforce spend

      500k a year is about $250/hour which isn’t even that high for strategic consulting tbh.

    Listen guys, this role is program architect managing Salesforce is solution and not a software r&d architect role that require 10+ years software development experience that warrants 300k+ offer.

    What is saleforce architecture like? Sounds. Like a high level title but tc seems like a eng 1/2

      Thx for explaining. Btw, don't believe the 1-1.5 years bs. The recruiter says that to make u sign the offer. From a eng2 to senior in Amazon is a big gap.

    1-1.5 yrs is total bs. They can't give him in written so doesn't matter. And total comp seems too low for amazon.

    Seems like a role with limited growth options. Is it titled a an SDE?

    This is a low side offer for PA. What is you location? PAs can be anywhere which greatly changes offer. It is misleading to not say that in title as architect on the t&p side is basically a VP.

    PAs can get as high as $300-400k TC based on region, but they do cap out as SF charges $500k a year to clients for role, so it has a top end.

    Just stay clam and do your thing.
    Worst offer I have ever heard. Salesforce architect can’t be at level 5

    Good. You need to get a lot of certification to be a salesforce architect. That comp sucks. He can get a better deal at tons of our customers
