Recently got an offer from Salesforce:
Non-engineering. Level 8.
Base 170k. Bonus 15%. RSU 65K over 4 years.
Base is ok. Is the stock kind of low?

    170K + 65K equity for L8 non-tech. I just hired an L4 non tech for 150K + 120K equity...

      Thanks! Is that with or without negotiating with competing offers? Also, as a manager, would you wait for a candidate to finish interviewing at another placr and obtain an offer that he or she could negotiate with or try to offer something good early so they can commit fast to you?

      Just curious. Because my timeline are a bit off for multiple offers. I know ballpark figures but don't have an offer yet from company #2.

      No. Less. Expect $130-140 base and 60-80 equity without competing offers. With it can reach 170 /120 if google

      One last question. What about for IC5 both with or without Google competing offer? Thanks!

      That would be very helpful to know since I'm not sure what level they will come back with. Just want to be on a safe side by knowing the numbers for IC5 too. Thanks!

      Also no offense but he came from McKinsey so has to pay a premium relative to big 4

      I have talked to people in FB. I am equivalent of a L5 at Facebook based on my cisoc level. I know salesforcr titles are a bit inflated.

      Exactly - salesforce senior manager = L5, salesforce Director = L6, salesforce senior director = L7, salesforce VP or SVP = Director

    Salesforce is very stingy with RSUs in general but 65k seems low even by those standards

      It is pretty stingy. 70K RSU is maxrd for this level. Total comp not much more than my current comp. Really considering not taking it.

    Really a VP as a senior manager? Is there that much of a difference... what group from Salesforce to what group in Facebook?
    Feb 222
    • Facebook Is paleo
      Can’t say. We also hired an SVP from a Fortune 500 as a director (L8). Very normal.

    Senior manager? This offer seems kind of low compared to tech offers for the same level. Do you have completing offers? You will definitely get more RSUs if you ask. No sign on?

      Yes. Senior Manager. Level 9 is already director level.
      I have negotiated to $185 base. 70k RSU. (seems like the RSU is really untouchable) and 30K sign-on.

      Do you have competing offers?

    Salesforce is usually 3 levels below Facebook so this sounds about right
    Feb 221
    • Facebook Is paleo
      We just hired salesforce VP as a senior manager (L7) for instance

    OP
    I have asked more, waiting for them to get back to me. HR said for this level, base can only go up to 200K and RSU can't go over 65K
