Salesforce doesn't really value business strategy and process expertise.

Microsoft 1: which roles do they typically go in?

Interviewed with their Global strategy group this year and it was all MBB (w/some Deloitte). Small group but the team reports up to the CEO

Cuz that’s not where you go when you’re ex mbb

I mean, I got an offer for 275 + RSUs in April.

Salesforce seems to have a nice rep but I’ve interacted with them on a few projects and not impressed at all. They know SF but typically nothing about the business/industry.

Are these folks from their services / consulting group? If so that’s only a small slice of the company.

Salesforce is a great company and has many ex consultants, multiple strategy teams too, pays well. Many of the comments on this thread are hilariously out of touch 😂

funny

I interviewed with the strategy group and the the head was from S& and has brought on a few consultants from S& because of that connection. Think that might also be a reason since the strategy team is small.

Junior partner at a specialist boutique consulting firm (compete w/ MBB primarily in our verticals) with prior experience in PE on both deals and ops side, and corp dev. My career here is pretty stable and money is good enough without killing myself (500k+ cash) but I miss being an investor vs an advisor. Is there any path back to GE/PE at this stage? My gut says no unless it's a firm where I have a client relationship and I get lucky but hard to broach the subject given dynamics. Any advice?
