I’m disappointed with a recent offer from Salesforce. I know the base can go higher for this role and I am worth more than what’s being offered! Unfortunately the recruiter asked me my current salary and I responded but my current salary is an average for my current role (although I am a v.high performer per the last 2 years ratings) and could be the result of old biases. Any tips to make sure I get what I deserve.

So I don't understand why anyone ever answers the "what is your current salary?" question. Instead just tell them what you need to move positions.

Next, I doubt this is even real because asking for salary has been illegal since 2017 for California employers. Salesforce recruiters wouldn't be asking that question.

I wish the recruiter knew it’s illegal and I wish I knew too 🙂

If you are “worth more than that” go get an offer for what you’re worth. It’s pretty simple. If you can’t, that should tell you something too. I also gave my current salary when I interviewed at Salesforce ($240), got an offer for $325, and negotiated it up to $350.

Yeah I had the same experience, they simply matched my current salary and didn’t offer more. If you come from consulting, they give an excuse we do not pay as high as consulting firms.

What is the role/title offered?

Cool story only missing all the key details...BAs have multiple levels - associate, BA, Sr BA, Director- you probably didnt meet the right level. We beat big 4 comp all the time be sure and consider that Salesforce bonus is near guaranteed and we have RSUs.

At least for sales, Salesforce is 25-30% lower than MSFT, AWS, Oracle. I think this year we may see higher attrition as the culture is shifting.

Thanks SF5. That’s a good perspective from a program architect. It’s a bit of a different experience on the sales side. It’s not a bad place to be. You have to find what you can give to salesforce and what you can get. I’ve just seen the culture change quite a bit in sales.

If you were a Manager at Deloitte, you should probably be aiming for Senior Principal Business Architect (L8). If you came into Deloitte with MBA, might struggle to improve on that salary as I don’t think MBA has some influence on salary at Salesforce.

Negotiating Raise to CMO

I’m finishing year 2 CPG startup where I lead marketing.

I was hired as “Marketing Manager” with the expectation that as long as I perform, I would continue to lead the department. I’ve helped the company grow from <$1M to forecasted $10M this year, and am the CEOs number 2. My ceo “de-prioritizes” titles, but I feel I’m deserving of it.

I’d like to negotiate the following:
- pay raise: $140k > $170k
- title: head of marketing > CMO
- equity: some added shares

Tips?
