How do you know it is time to move on. Doing well in my current org but have the opportunity to move to a boutique for higher role and much higher pay. Not 100% if I will get the promotion this year.

If you're going to work, turning a crank, and going home it's time to leave. You should always be learning and striving for the next level. When you've dialed in your role to the point your career is basically just muscle memory it's time for something else.

Depends on your long-term goals. What’s the new company? Do they have a good brand? Do you want to stay in Salesforce? How much more are they offering? How many times have you moved around?

Can't say the name yet. I am up in Canada and yes that is low for salesforce consultants even in Canada. I was freelance salesforce consultant/admin/developer before joining current company. I am techno-functional.

And yes, my advice would be to move. I left there and went from $75k to $135k. There’s no reason to be underpaid.

OP, Is this even a question? You’re looking at. 40k raise. Not that money is everything, but that raise shifts the level for follow on roles. Also the work at a boutique is a unique opportunity vs. staying at the big firm so there’s experience gains through that as well

The boutique has a good brand doing mid size to enterprize level salesforce implementations. Came into consulting about 2 years ago as experienced hire. Potentially up for promo to manager in my current big consulting company as i have been told by quite a few in leadership that i am performing at that level but i have also been told i may not get the promo even though i may be doing the job. Really confused here as to what i should do. Currently making 80K and will be looking at 120K at the boutique. Even though it is a significant amount I still want to ensure if the move would be the right one.

Wow 80 is pretty low at the senior con level. So a bump of 40k would be hard to turn down. What were you doing before consulting? I also do Salesforce consulting too and a lot of companies are willing to pay top dollar since it is so in demand. What’s the new company if you don’t mind me asking? Guessing either slalom, west Monroe or silverline?

So if you were doing Salesforce before you should definitely be making more then. Don’t let your current company take advantage of you

Thank you. The current company has been losing good capable salesforce resources lately.

So you work for ACN then?

Wow sc1 how many yrs of expereience did you have when you made the jump?

6.5 total, 5 consulting, 2 client-facing

Are all those yrs of Salesforce experience?

5 years SFDC (3 internal ops), 2 in SFDC consulting

My guess is OP is at BlueWolf!

Agreed.

Thank you everyone for your valuable thoughts. I was of two minds and you have definitely help. I am still talks with a couple of these boutiques and see what comes out of it.

I'm going through the same thing. Biggest concern on my end is rebuilding the network and politics at the new firm. Should just say fuck it and make more money at SF

What will you achieve by building network and politics if you are loosing thousands of USD every month. Earn well save invest and secure your future. Life in digital technology consulting space is short and one can easily get obsolete.
