Salesforce non-exempt offer

Nov 16, 2019 3 Comments

Wife's company got acquired by Salesforce. While she is keeping essentially the same role with a different title (Senior Success Agent), her status is changing from being exempt to non-exempt. Base salary remains roughly the same. She has some concerns as to what this change of status means, and whether it's essentially a "downgrade" in her comp. Wondering if anyone could shed some more light on this subject.
Also, since we're on the subject of comp - is it at all negotiable, especially in this case where it's an acquisition and not a straight up hire?
I couldn't find a lot of comp data on this particular role. If anyone could share some information that'd be great. Oh, and this is in California.

Thanks in advance!

    Non-exempt basically means hourly which is much better because now she's qualified to get paid for overtime! With Exempt you're salary and doesn't matter if you work 6 hours or 60 hours you get paid the same amount

    Bigger companies tend to get hit with serious lawsuits over compensation, hourly is the trend. Oracle got hammered with that a few years back. Has little to do with job title, skills, etc. and more to do with self-protection in a litigious environment
