Director of Product, San Francisco
Base: $225
Bonus: 20%
RSU: $150k total over 4 years (or, 37.5k/yr)

Recruiter said that she could probably push up the base to $230k and the RSU is maxed out until I can show a competitive offer or unvested equity I am leaving on the table and even a that it would be $20-30k max total.

Seems to be on the low side but I would like to request current employees to evaluate.

      You wouldn't get junior work. They're different jobs. Director at Salesforce is like Senior Manager in other companies.

      Senior IT Ops Manager, 12 years experience in infra, Ops, and service delivery.
      Depends on the vertical / function / line of business. Some (most) functions are title inflated here. Other functions are under titled for role and scope when compared to the market.

      It’s a weird spot to be in. Ask me how I know.

    Director at Salesforce is a pretty senior title with product line level responsibilities. However most of the comments are from consumer companies which generally pay a lot more. Enterprise software companies don't pay that much.

    I would love to hear thoughts from current/former Salesforce employees or folks in the enterprise software companies.

    Comparing Salesforce to Google/FB/AirBnB is not a good comparison.

      This offer is strong.

      I agree to the previous comments that Salesforce has a huge title inflation. I’ve seen people in salesforce with two years of experience and became director and many with very unrelated experience from no name companies became senior director. Not saying you are not good, but a director in sfdc just doesn’t compare to other directors in the tech industry. So to me this is a very generous offer.

      In AWS, you would often see people who have been vp, svp for over 5 yrs from the likes of HPE, VMware, juniper to become sr manager when they join AWS. If they were to join sfdc they would have been evp or c-level stuff. Just to give you a perspective of the difference.

    The only good thing about this offer is the title. Total comp is $307k. This is basically an L4 (maybe low L5) offer. So this is an offer for PM or Senior PM.
