Got an offer to work as Solution Architect for Salesforce. I love the company, been working with it for the past 6 years, but I’m afraid as I have a baby on the way, and tech industry doesn’t seem too stable lately. I’ve been working in Pharma for the past 8 years, there are no layoffs, benefits are fine, but I just can’t take working any longer in here, as I hate what I’m working with. However, I’d leave “client side” to “consultant side”. Thoughts?

You know salesforce has a pretty good maternal/paternal leave policy. I personally have enjoyed the switch - it depends on who your manager/team ends up being but I like the people and culture.

Yeah, I’m talking LATAM geography, but people I know (and that referred me) told me about Salesforce benefits and base salary are better than where I work currently. Although, I have company car, all included. I think the switch from client to consultant might be a shocker at first moment, but it’s the recent layoffs and having to mostly rely on how economy is going is what makes me worried the most about tech industry.

What kind of role do you have in pharma? I agree it’s stressful

As of now, I’m a Marketing Automation Manager, under the Digital product group. I came to this position aiming to be a Salesforce Architect, but the team restructuring pushed me deeper into “Digital” platforms (which kinda sucks because of the industry I’m in and the customer I interact with)

I’m sure you’re aware of Salesforce’s parental leave which is one of the best in the industry. I’d be curious to know how one navigates a situation where you are a new hire then need to take 6 months leave immediately when baby arrives? I’m sure there are retaliation protections around being let go during that leave time but I would imagine that convo w the manager might be weird at first. Do they know you are expecting ?

I haven’t heard quite as much churn in the engineering section as with Sales/AMs. If it was in those sectors, I’d probably tell you to look elsewhere.

I’m almost done with my MBA but I’ll have to take out a loan to pay the last bit of it. I’ve paid about $30k out of pocket and I’ll have $18k that I’ll have to take a loan out for. I have a brokerage account that has $10k in it. Would it make sense to pull that money out to pay for the majority of what I have left or to just get a loan? I’m meeting with my FA in the summer but am just curious for other opinions. Keep in mind I make $53k and I have a 401k, Roth IRA, and traditional IRA as well.
