Entry level engineer, recently got offers from Apple and Airbnb. Do people recommend moving or staying at Salesforce?

Apple company culture seems opaque, but the hiring team seems nice and projects seem more interesting.

Airbnb seems to have nice company culture, but not sure how the engineering practices are and if engineering problems are challenging.

Salesforce has nice culture, but personally felt like might prefer consumer product company.

Personally wanna work on data engineering/ applied ML. Any insights appreciated. Thanks!

    Apple and Airbnb are both significantly better than Salesforce.

      Agree. Salesforce isn’t in the same league as Apple or Airbnb for comp, work, and reputation

      Does AirBnB pay well? Salesforce definitely ranks lower than those companies, but with our stock doing well, our pay hasn't been that bad. Check out levels.fyi. We're somewhat competitive and have WLB. As for our tech stack, well.....

      Airbnb pays really well but our stock is still paper money which sucks

      Salary + bonus is almost the same as my TC at SFDC. And I get to work with AWS now instead of 3 years later

    I like Salesforce, but since it's early in your career, I would highly suggest leaving. You'll learn a lot by moving companies and you usually get a pay jump.

    I'm surprised AirBnB got way more votes than Apple. Can those of you who voted for it explain why it's better?

      They have a rep for paying well right now although it's still pre IPO

      Oh so the main difference is just compensation? What about personal learning and growth?
