Pretty much everyone who left says the grass is much greener outside and they are now paid much better. What no one is saying is whether they have to work much harder for that higher pay. Is the grass really that much greener than here? I need a better pay, but I wouldn’t want to be overworked more than I am here.

Definitely greener. Better comp, equity, and WLB. No toxic politics or annoying colleagues either. After I left, I realized I must have had Stockholm Syndrome.
definitely less political. we spend too much time dealing with internal alignment, flooded with too many (useless) enablement from different teams and peddling the kitchen sink to customers. is anybody still putting Customer Success at the heart of our solution?
It’s greener. Better money and work/life balance.
No grass is ever greener on the other side. It’s only greener because you would have learnt from your previous experiences and you’re setting the right boundaries when you move on. If you do decide to move, negotiate well, set expectations and boundaries, and don’t repeat what you’ve done before at Salesforce.
