Is Salesforce interviewing everyone in the world? Building quite a professional war chest, by spending quite the war chest. My hunch is that the bullish hiring, will be followed by a bearish layoff season.

They usually let go of the bottom 5% I believe, heard Beinoff say that once on CNBC

They're a huge company. Also, I think many people have possibly left because they don't want to return to the offices and Salesforce has said it's not going to let people go permanent remote.

Salesforce definitely has had mass layoffs in the past, usually as part of a reorganization. But their growth guidance is pretty bullish, has been bullish for the past few years, and earnings continue to beat guidance. Their is also a significant talent shortage in the SFDC ecosystem that's affecting salesforce and all of their partners.

All asset prices are crazy since the recession rumors in 2019, covid, stimulus, etc. I’m expecting SFDC to correct eventually.

I recently became PMP certified and am working as a Project Coordinator on a large ERP project. I’ve been in the position for 2 months, enjoy the work, and would like more responsibility and work from home. The director made an inappropriate (sexual) comment; it was so inappropriate that I don’t want to work with the company and am looking for a new opportunity. I would like to get into IT, but I don’t have a speciality. What are tech companies looking for in a Project/Product Manager?

I work at a boutique (currently ~14 bankers and 10 back office roles). Joined in august. Since august, 3 senior bankers (MD / VP) 1 HR director, and now 2 analysts have left for great opportunities. To be honest I’m happy and like my role, plus it’s too early to think about switching firms already. I am now the only analyst left, we have another one joining in January. Any advice on how I can leverage this for comp discussions at the end of the year?
