I’m also interviewing from consulting to Salesforce! I have no doubts on the work culture - everyone raves about it. Just doubts that it’ll be also challenging as a corporate, and diverse like a consulting position. Can you tell me more about how your interview was? I’m interviewing for a solutions architect role too. I’m doing it “all” currently. Analyst mostly. But pm, presales, architect, implantation, training for team lead, etc. as a consultant now.

Can you post your hesitations

Tough to vouch for culture. There’s 70,000 people so culture isn’t consistent regardless of what the handbook says. WLB is good across the board for 99% of employees. Room for growth again depends. Promotions are not very transparent and some orgs preach the “wait your turn” mentality. 🤷‍♂️

Would love to work at Salesforce. I heard the room for growth and WLB, but my own major hesitation would be pay. I heard they can’t compete in that department.

That’s the opposite of what I’ve heard. They pay $$$ and poach everyone.

Hi all! I’m an MBA Candidate with 3.5 years on H1B. What consulting firms are still hiring internationals among MBB and Big 4?

I don’t mean to be vague but does anyone have experience or insights on if things are “better” as a black person working as a consultant or in house somewhere rather than in an agency? Any POV is helpful. For background I currently work at Ogilvy in a pretty junior role and I see NO ONE that looks like me. Peers or at the top aside from those in HR/diversity and in addition to dealing with the day to day reality of being a POC in corporate America, its hard to visualize a path to “the top”.
