The skills you learn in r&d actually position you for a lot of other careers that you wouldn’t expect. Many in c-suite / leadership. You learn how to talk to all sorts of people, how to think critically, how to defend something that has many angles, how a business works, and a lot of psychology. It won’t set you up for a career In general tax if you want out but it does open doors elsewhere.


Thanks TP - I appreciate the insight!

Realizing that I shouldn't have made R&D my main SL...

Already got rejected from 1 interview because I didn't have enough compliance

Hi Folks,

I recently got interviewed at Salesforce for position of Lead Automation Solutions Engineer and they extended an offer. FYI,I did some initial negotiation and the package looks like this;
Total Pkg - 255K(Base - 136K,MBO - 9K,Commision - 49K,RSU - 60K/4year).
Is there any room for negotiation or did I already hit the roofline?
Appreciate the insights. Thanks.

Hi new to dfw area looking to buy a house. How’s the commute downtown from Frisco/McKinney area?


Got feedback after 6+ rounds of interviews that i didnt receive an offer for the job I was interviewing for, main reason being i seemed "low energy" which impacted my conversations/communication at times. I am not sure why if they picked this up after 2-3 rounds why they would have me continue on, but I am not sure how to take this. I asked a ton of questions and did a ton of research so I dont think I came off as unenthusiastic about the role/company, but any ideas on what else this means?
