How does Salesforce and Facebook compare in terms of WLB? I have an offer from FB but have heard horror stories about stress and crazy hours at FB. I work close to 50 hrs at SFDC and the company encourages leaving your work in the office. Debating if a few 10G’s are worth moving for.

      I will need some time to move up a level at SFDC. I don’t want to blackmail my way through a promotion by presenting an offer and demand a promotion. That is a short term gain and leaves a bad taste.
      I like Salesforce and even if I leave, would like to keep the option to boomerang available.

      No I am asking from an external candidate perspective.

      I’m sure it’s possible. Usually when a PM position is opened it’s available for 2-3 levels based on candidate’s experience.

    FB is way worse (might double hours) compared to SF according to many of my friends.

      I do like my job here, don’t want to change teams. FB just chased me for a long time and I finally caved and interviewed.
