Microsoft Vs Salesforce

PayPal / Eng rockerzone
Apr 16 21 Comments

Hello,

I'm really confused. Just got a confirmation from M$ regarding SSE role (AZURE team) (Not sure if it's 63) that they were proceeding. The location is Seattle (Bellevue)

I've got a Salesforce San Francisco Offer (Base: 200K | TC: 300K) for Senior MTS role.

What is better suited for my career? I'm into Front-end development. These are the key differences I see:

1. Seattle Vs San Francisco
2. Microsoft Vs SF in terms of culture, brand on resume and overall

I've got totally 7 offers in my hand ATM but I narrowed down to these two.

TC: 5 years | Front end engineering.

      Seattle? Want to hear your perspective. What about the culture and brand value?

      MS has better career opportunities, Seattle has cheaper cost of living, usually TC in Seattle is equal to what you get in Bay these day

      Also Seattle got almost all of Faang/unicorns jobs now and most of folks there used to work at MS, so the brand name is definitely better

      From what I heard the Marketing cloud isn’t in the best shape at Salesforce. I heard it’s very political. Tho personally I like Microsoft more as it’s a very good name to have on the resume, the tech is interesting, and overall the culture has improved very well

    You sure this is salesforce San Francisco? Because the Marketing Cloud is based in Indianapolis and that’s where everybody is except for a few teams I know are in New York
