I feel like Facebook needs to be removed from “FAANG” status and replaced with Salesforce, SAANG, or some other arrangement of the letters. Does anyone else feel this way?

remove Netflix. they've officially told us they're not a tech company they're a content company that invests wildly in one specific cost center.

That’s also fair.

Well SF makes 11b in yearly revenue and FB makes 55b. FB sales are 5 times that of SF And it’s market cap is roughly 5 times the size. Even SAP makes 3 times what SF does.

I sort of see what you are saying but I believe that FAANG is more about the size of the impact in the B2C market. All the companies in FAANG operate primarily in the B2C market where SF operates in the B2B market. Outside of consulting if you ask most people about SF they most likely don’t know what it even is. So that doesn’t drive a real level of prestige for top tier graduates to want to gravitate to a company like SF.

I'm trying to switch from consulting to product management. Is it possible to make the switch directly or would I need to go to business school?

Is that a better value substitute for business school? Sorry for the question overload lol. Thanks in advance for your help 🙂

Serious question. I constantly see income reports published that indicate only ~5% of the US population make over $250k, ~1% over $500k, etc. Is this actual W2 reported income?

I feel like these reports do not always tell the whole story in terms of TC & investment income.
