We sit at home and play on the internet all day, no biggie 😅 Lets say dear Salesforce OP, I would go for a trading places scene with you to see who has it better. The plus is switching projects every so often for these inevitable difficult people we run into politically everywhere, we eventually get to leave and find a new batch of challenging personalities to tango with. I like it, but I would go for a run at Salesforce too. Maybe there is some job swap we could arrange, ha!


You wouldn’t want to do that. We have it wayyyyyyyy better


Do purely advisory work and make 110k base as SC post-MBA.



Thanks for the input...obviously work with a lot of consultants but wanted to see what life was like on the other side. I always assumed pay would be higher!

I’ll trade you!! 😂 I would LOVE nothing more than to exit to Salesforce.

I’m currently a consultant in the SF practice. We have an awesome team but the WLB is the biggest downfall.

I’m very curious to hear about your experience at SF. Mind if I PM you? I’d happily answer any questions for you as well, like specific comp details.

Yeah go ahead! Happy to chat.

I just graduated from college this year and I’ve been blessed to receive several job offers. I obtained my dream job, but the salary as an entry level employee isn’t very sufficient. I received an offer for a remote position, so I was wondering if it would be possible to manage two full time jobs at the same time if one is remote and the other was on site. Of course, I would make both employers aware and seek permission. I would really appreciate the community’s thoughts on this.
