Twitter vs Salesforce

Yahoo fullinfo
Dec 12, 2017 23 Comments

Received offers from Salesforce and Twitter with the below details: (4 yrs experience)

Twitter (SD 2):

Base - 160K
Bonus - 7.5%
Rsu - 11000 units (4 yrs)
Joining bonus - 20k

Salesforce (Senior Software Engineer)

Base - 165K
Bonus - 15%
Rsu - 125k (4 yrs)
No joining bonus

The Twitter role seems more interesting than the one at Salesforce, although Salesforce as a company seems more stable at this point (job security, etc ...). Would appreciate your thoughts. Thanks in advance

    With the competing offer from Twitter you can negotiate and get a signing bonus plus probably some more RSUs. I really enjoy working here, if that matters at all to you.

      I pushed for the signing bonus and more rsus. However, they are not ready to increase their offer :(

      Sorry to hear that. I hate the fact that we aren’t more competitive at times. It’s still a great place to work and our stock will likely be worth more than your Twitter package in the next couple of years.

      Sorry . I don’t know what world 🌎 some folks live in. For many I know, this is great. Again depends on your immigration status , current situation , etc . If you’re a citizen , green card holder I guess you can play hard ball.

    What work are you getting at Salesforce vs Twitter . I would prefer Salesforce as it is growing and has lot of potential to become a giant compared to Twitter who is struggling to survive ..

      The work is similar that is a full stack role at both places. Cant provide more details, although, work at twitter would involve working on platform with high amount of real time traffic. Salesforce role is more about building web services

      If you are on H1B I would suggest go to Salesforce would offer stability rather than Twitter
