    • The bar for “elite” is relative. Whether true or not, stop feeding FANG egos with statements like this.

      I am not in Eng and almost no one comes in after 9:30 and leave before 5. I wish I had the Wlb described.

    Google. They have yearly refreshers that we don't have. Supposedly, they have good work life balance too like Salesforce.

    Also is that 20 your bonus %? If you're SMTS, you only get 15.

      No refreshers. Only top performers will get rsu refreshers or so they say...

      Yep as everybody said. No refreshers unless you're high up in the food chain. So if you're principal, you might have a 50% chance. Architect+ will be higher and more common. Leads and below are not seen as critical so they rarely get refreshers.

      OP
      I thought LMTS is equivalent to ICT5 or high end of T5. Will check with recruiter whether I can get LMTS instead of SMTS then. Thanks!

    Yeah SMTS is like 3 years of experience here. LMTS package is quite a bit more than that offer though. You can ask for more RSUs or ask for LMTS. Take google if they don’t budge.

    Haha... Notice how many Salesforce people has come out and told you to take Google 😂. That's not to say Salesforce is bad. I actually like working here. But it's not really in the same level as Google.

    you need to factor in stock growth as well. Salesforce stock growth: ~80% last year, while it is ~30% for Goog.

    Google looks good on your resume. My vote is for Google. I heard Google gives good refreshers.

      What's the base for lmts and pmts nowadays?

    I’ve worked at both: Google. SFDC ain’t bad, you get unlimited vacay, but problems far more interesting at Google, and overall better place to work career wise and financially
