Thread regarding Inc. layoffs

3rd Wave

Salesforce is a great employer, better than any other I worked for in the past anyway. Blessing and a problem are the "golden handcuffs". Financial incentives, wellness perks and other benefits make it difficult to leave the company especially in the 1st 4 years.

Heavily siloed employees in various IT departments have limited to none growth opportunities and many just perform the same task over and over without anything new learned. This is true especially in smaller offices outside of the main hubs.

Timing is everything and I hope for many victims of this last layoff this was the kick in the butt they needed to motivate them, move-on and hopefully grow. I suspect more "restructuring" is on the cards for those roles (mine included) that haven't been part of this 2nd wave of culling. At least I can prepare, unlike the poor b–tards that were part of this last layoff.

Ohana. Yep, there will be the third way - MB said he will keep doing it

Salesforce is an OK employer. Good for a large company. Better than Oracle, definitely, but it seems to be headed in that direction. I came via an acquisition (MuleSoft) and it's definitely worse than my previous company.

What bothers me about Salesforce is the forced, cult-like Ohana rhetoric. These layoffs prove that is a big load of dung. It's a business, not a family.

CFO allowing their team to waste money on a project that's not going anywhere. Their IT people s—s and basically wasting millions dollar 🤑 for something that is not going to benefit anyone. Good Lord...
