I finished Salesforce interview and offer number recruiter told me is 235k. Feels low to me. Do Salesforce pay around 300 for someone with 7 years experience?

    235k is already towards the high end of smts range

    That looks like an excellent SMTS offer tbh. Salesforce doesn't usually give much stock.

    Is it even possible to negotiate a salary from 235 to 350 ?

      Yes, but you need leverage! Either by your current comp or by other offers.

    Salesforce doesn't pay much. That's similar to an offer I received. They didn't want to budge.

    It might be useful to state, base, target bonus and stock separately.

      Yes but that’s not going to happen without s competing offer. I hate that bullshit, if you like a person you should pay them what the market thinks they’re worth.

    It is a good offer for smts and don’t bargain if you are not planning to join. We don’t compete with GOOG in salaries

      I just want to keep a balance of culture and salary. Just want to join a good company with decent pay. If I can negotiate good pay at Salesforce that’s great, not really looking google salary. He he

      You won’t get 300k unless you have competitive offer.

    That's a pretty good offer for smts.. They are leveling you lower than trey should tho.. Smts is like high end L4. You should be L5. Tell them you should be leveled at lmts.

      Smts usually maps to l3. Lmts is closer to high end l4.

    Yes. You'll probably get a base increase of 10k just for asking. That will push your bonus up. Then ask for much more stock. Companies are more liberal with stock than cash.
