What does an exit from Salesforce consulting look like? I’m in a technical role leading a small team so my understanding is a technical/solution architect or a development team lead at either Salesforce or an end user like Amazon/Amex. I have bounced around a couple consulting companies so would prefer not to do it again. Total 4 YOE. I don’t think I have enough YOE to go for a program architect role at SF otherwise I’d be interested.

Your two examples are the most common. I’ve also seen folks leave to other cloud roles e.g. aws, google. You’re not necessarily stuck in salesforce, but the longer you build your technical skillset on the platform, the harder it will be to leave.

Isn't SF so big and diverse it's like every few yrs there is something new to learn so it's not like you stuck with SF forever... It's like being a pro at SAP, you get them big $$$

Solution engineer / pre-sales is an ok place to end up

Why do you want to leave the technical side in the first place? It's a good place to be considering long term career goal, isn't it?

I am saying I don’t want to leave the technical side. I’m just tired of consulting man. I want to get out of these hours and not do firm initiatives and not have to deal with complicated timesheets. I know the grass is always greener but it’s definitely greener than the green dot!

When the credit card was opened she had no photo identification, if you asked her she wouldn’t have been able to tell you where she lived, wouldn’t have been able to give phone number either. Any thoughts on this?
