Work life balance? Good leaders and culture?

    Salesforce will match almost any offer, but might lowball you to begin with. WLB is absolutely great. People wfh a lot. 4% annual merit increase and above 100% bonus is standard, plus you get more if you are good. Stock Refreshers are given only to top performers.

    They are very behind and the leadership sacrifices quality for scope, a lot. The engineering quality is below average compared to the ones I worked with at Microsoft. People pretty much enjoy the WLB which means taking good use of the unnecessary process that gets in the way. Majority of the people here are from windows team whose mindset is still very old school. If you are looking for leaning faster and more innovation, I wouldn’t recommend. If you are looking for WLB and not care about others that much, this might not be a bad place.

    They are building solid product security and infra teams these days. Good work and TC from what I've heard.

    It is *Salesforce* at the end of the day, though. But if you want to work on cool stuff and get paid, maybe it doesn't matter so much.

      Solving security at scale, consuming new products and architectures, finding bugs in interesting codebases, etc.

    My company is a Salesforce partner (they’re also our investor and customer - oh SV) and while I don’t work directly for them I love working “with” them. I always engage with a great group of folks from that side fwiw
