    SalesForce for growth. Google for rest and vest.

      Basically all of it outside of Einstein. If OP would be joining Einstein then that changes things a bit. But otherwise...Salesforce is as laid back as they come. In a recent channel survey, half of poll respondees reported they can or do work from home 100% of the time.

    Google has regular rsu refreshers. Salesforce does not. Google comp is going to be way more after a few years.

      I mean it's not competitive with Google I'll give you that, but "worst" is pretty off the mark

      As of Nov 4 Symantec no longer exists. We'll be Broadcom then. Salesforce is the worst. Symantec is bad too, don't get me wrong, but Salesforce is terrible. Broadcom sucks too.

    Which team in Microsoft? Infra at Salesforce is a big org and has some teams working on cool projects. But there is nothing extraordinary. Most of it is reusing open source projects . Infra and Einstein teams pay well at Salesforce - On par with Google L4/FB E4. Work in Infra can be hectic depending on the teams. Some of them get refreshers too, but it is not common. There is room to grow and learn. If you have an offer from GCP - then depending on the teams you might have better opportunity to grow at Google.

    Is it worth switching for pay considering you will have to move from Redmond to Bay area ?

    Is there a way to negotiate the Google offer? Salesforce recruiter says this is the absolute best she can do for SMTS and the Google recruiter says she needs a written proof of a better offer to improve the existing one.

    That's a very strong offer for SMTS. The base is about average for new hire SMTS, but the RSUs are very high.

    If you want to optimize for WLB, go with Salesforce. If you want to optimize for career growth, go with Google.
