    I had come from AWS to Salesforce. While I met a lot of incredibly smart and hard-working people, the top engineers who were really trying to build interesting technology were stuck working on things that weren't really that interesting or cutting edge. The way I'd put it is that Salesforce isn't a technology company -- it sees technology as a means to create a sales product.

      I'd say that for perks Salesforce is better. For learning and engineering, AWS is much better

      Gotcha! Thank you for the insight

      What about Solution Engineer roles at Salesforce or the Solutions Architect role at AWS? I’m looking to make the jump from MSFT to either one of these. I know they’re not traditional engineering roles, but just wanted to know what you thought of them given your experience with both companies.

      Thank you :)

      Keep in mind salesforce is a saas company vs amazon being iaas and pass. SE at salesforce involves a lot of demo construction and storytelling, not a tech heavy role in general. Demo construction is mostly configure and customize, packaging stories for customers. If you like that kind of work then it is great. Most of the skills you gain are valuable within the salesforce ecosystem, not very valuable outside.

      I appreciate your response, thank you for the insight :)

      Would you happen to know if the SE role at Salesforce is a travel-heavy role? Or is it much more regional/remote?

      In general remote with occasional travel. But in some cases based on the accounts travel might become heavy.

    LinkedIn is more tech focussed. LinkedIn will beat any salesforce offer hands down. You don't even need to mention the salesforce offer to LinkedIn recruiter

    Wish folks could see talent flows like LI recruiting folks can. SF bleeds folks to LI. Not the opposite.

    “Verbal confirmation” is not an offer

      Agreed. Just got the info and I'm confused. I will update the post once I have numbers. I'm just seeking help from blind community on which company is better for WLB and overall picture

    This is a no-brainer. Heroku is a good team at SF but other than that LI creates better technology, primarily because of the type of service it offers. You will grow more at LI. Finally, perks and TC are much better, ceteris paribus.
