I know Microsoft is 2nd tier to FB/Google, but how about salesforce? It’s always ranked at the top for best companies to work for, they get paid pretty well (new grad base is like $125-130k), career growth is fast, and people seem happy to work there. What tier does salesforce rank compared to tier 1 (Fb, Google) and tier 2 (Microsoft, Amazon)?

    Stop trying to make tiers happen. It's not going to happen.

    This tier stuff is all bullshit. If you see a role you like at Salesforce and the pay is acceptable. Go do it.

    Each job, within a group, within a division, within a company is going to have it's own set of positives and negatives that an individual will look at a certain way. What's important to you may not be important to me.

    Some of these names may make it easier to get an interview somewhere else and depending on pay, may get you a better offer if you pass interviews but that is about it.

      Amazon’s pay is less and easier to get into at least for new grads/interns. Apple definitely has more prestige. Much higher bar since they make you do like 8+ interviews.

      Don’t take my company tag into consideration when I say this but more interviews does not equal higher bar.

      Google started piloting 4 interview SWE onsites. Does that mean their bar is lower than amazon?

      Amazon is just a hacker rank and if you pass that then there’s no on site and direct offer

      Company is irrelevant. You’re trying to correlate number of interviews to how high the bar is at a given company

    • I have to agree I turned down apple because they were just arrogant and during that long interview process one interviewer didn't show up and I didn't get lunch.

    On a basic level, it's all about TC and prestige. Therefore, FNG are tier 1. I would say Microsoft is tier 2. Amazon 2/3.

      Hmm yea that’s what I was thinking from a tech industry standpoint but from a real world standpoint I don’t know anyone outside of the tech industry that knows what salesforce even is. Not sure if tiers are based on their reputation from within tech or overall

      These tiers are all based on industry consensus, not the outside world. For ex if you tell someone outside of silicon valley or Seattle that you work for Amazon, they'll assume you're a warehouse worker

    Why do you worry about tiers? If company has good reputation, doing good, pays you well, have good wlb.. then go for it.
