I got contacted by Salesforce for a remote job and not sure how Salesforce remote team operates since they are not remote first company.

If you work remote at Salesforce, could please share your experience?

Are you seen as a second class employee? Is remote get paid less?

    What is the position? A huge percent of our staff works remote they are just in our more client focused areas- sales, pre sales, customer success, advisory/consulting.

    I love working remote, you for sure miss out on a lot of occasional perks but I think not commuting trumps that.

    Comp wise they are still competitive, but they will adjust it to the region you live in. Even with the adjustment I am for sure at top pay for my low cost of living area. Only real downside is if you want to grow into a more senior management role that has limited options being remote and they will want you to get close to a salesforce hub office.

    You’ll be fine if your entire team is remote. Definitely don’t want to be the only remote engineer on the team. Also be aware that it’ll be harder for you to transfer internally in the future because not all teams like to have remote employees.

    It is not an official rule, but I think it is a defacto rule that you normally need to prove that you can work remotely before you work remotely.

    Many of the engineers who are remote started out in hq or a hub while they got to know the systems and the people, then they'd ask their managers to switch remote later. It is a sensible path.

    There are pockets in the company have acquired other companies that have remote-first or remote-friendly cultures.

    A third category is engineers who WFH progressively more until they become remote.

    I haven't heard of many cases of new engineers being remote with the possible exception of some referrals from an other well respected engineers.

    Fullofit's comments are completely correct.

    It depends on the team. I’ve been remote for 5 years. 3 years in SF before that.

    There are plenty of people that work remote. Some engineering teams are all remote. I'm in hq so can't really comment on their experience
