    This is pretty bad, I don't know what everyone else is talking about. With 5.5 YOE you should not be getting MTS unless you didn't do that great in your interviews (in which case idk why they'd want to hire you). If you're decently competent you should be an SMTS. Even the stocks are quite low for MTS, I got 75k as AMTS. Base is solid though.

      Salesforce try to downlevel a lot when you come from outside, I have seen people joining at MTS after this much experience

      I'm surprised to hear that to be quite honest with you. I know that YOE isn't everything but if this happens consistently then that's pretty shitty.

      Just because I haven't really seen it happen. Unless they're coming from like a meh company or were in a QA/test engineer kind of role I guess.

      Nope I have seen happening with good people from food companies, I think a lot depends on the person. Sometimes people don’t negotiate much and just come in and they are in every way smart.

      Yeah I mean I get that they lowball you, and why, but this is almost too low. I guess they're trying to make it up with the base?

    I know a return intern who was offered 140k stock and 140k base.

    Base is very good for MTS. I worked there as MTS until this June and most MTS I knew there are making only about 130 to 140k base. The stock is pretty meh. I was offered about that much stock as well but that was from two years ago. Although Salesforce is generally stingy with stocks. Is there a sign on bonus as well?

      No sign on bonus.

      Oh okay I got about 25k sign on when I joined so maybe see if they could push for something like that. Honestly for about 5 YOE I think it would be more appropriate to join as SMTS since titles are pretty inflated at Salesforce and I knew a lot of SMTS with only about 3 or 4 year experience. You would get 15% bonus and probably about 100 to 150k of stock over 4 years.

    80k stock should be minimum, but 100k is the norm for MTS in SF

    Please ask your friend to negotiate, new hires are getting 80k stocks these days with another offer in hand. Ask your friend to ask 100k atleast in stock and they might cater to it.
