Salesforce has received numerous awards for being one of the best places to work and while compensation surely factors into how employees feel about the company, Salesforce doesn’t share that information. Like many other firms, it doesn’t reveal employee salary and compensation, except for its very top executives where it’s required by federal regulations, like for CEO Marc Benioff.
However, federal data gives some insight into how much Salesforce paid its top talent. American companies have to disclose salaries when they apply for visas for current or prospective foreign workers. The Office of Foreign Labor Certification, which collects and processes those applications, publishes the salaries every year and Business Insider analyzed Salesforce’s 1,294 active foreign-worker visas to find out how much it pays workers in areas like engineering, data analytics, product management, and sales.
It’s not a comprehensive look, because the data only includes salaries for foreign workers and the roles they were hired for, but it is a rare snapshot into what Salesforce is shelling out. The data also doesn’t include bonuses or stock awards, so this is base salary versus total compensation.
We’ve included data for the most common roles, as well as some of the highest paid roles, which often only had one or two hires. Roles are categorized into business units like marketing, engineering, or security, based on information we found in job postings. Let us know if you think any titles are in the wrong category.
A few notes: If job titles have a salary range it means there were multiple hires with varied salaries, and if a job title only has one salary it means there was only one hire or all the hires had the same salary. If a job title has a state listed, it means the data only showed hires in that state, but if no state is listed, it means hires were across multiple states. Over half of Salesforce’s active visas are in California — the $187 billion tech giant is headquartered in San Francisco, CA. It also has large offices in Washington, Texas, Indiana, New York, and Massachusetts.
