I found out my company has Salesforce Developers and force.com engineers. What do they do? Is it a good skill? Maybe I will try to learn as well. My skills are gaining rust and I need to skill up and was considering switching to Salesforce development.

Any insight into this would be helpful. What is their salary range?

    Working on force.com was like going back to Borland Turbo Pascal on floppy disks, only slower. There were so many terrible things about it I don't know where to start. A simple refactoring that would normally take seconds could eat up most of a weekend using their Apex language because you had to very slowly comment out every reference to a variable before you could rename it. Not being hyperbolic here, it was that bad. The only synchronization tool was locks on database rows. I'd have to create temp tables and use row locking like a semaphore. It was a terrible experience. Oh and lots of SOAP WSDLs. Never again.

      Lmao @ calling every 4 months for a SaaS solution quick. You know other companies push hundreds of times a day right?

      Salesforce is insecure garbage and a giant house of cards that leadership is desperately trying to fix without taking it down.
