It is no surprise that Salesforce developer position has a very high demand!
No matter what type of organization they would like to join, there will be always great opportunities for them all around the world.
For that purpose, a lot of Salesforce developers either works at end-user organizations, which means Salesforce using companies or organizations that sell Salesforce services.
If you don’t know which organization you will most likely fit into, there are several factors that you may want to take into consideration.
Let’s dive into details!
Your workload will be different
By working in a typical Salesforce user company, most of the time, the requirements are more simple for Salesforce developers.
The main reason is that the developer will be working with one single org, which is more smooth and predictable.
On the contrary, in a consultancy company, Salesforce developers dive into various projects and different requirements.
For sure, it’s a great chance for them to develop themselves in their career by working with different stakeholders.
But, it’s always good to think about it again because project-based working and meeting the client’s expectations with some pressure might not be the perfect environment for everyone.
So we say you invest in yourself more as a Salesforce developer in a consultancy ecosystem.
Still, you need to be able to deal with high-intensity projects with various clients.
There’s a huge difference around mentorship
For companies using Salesforce, it’s evident that investing in junior developers is a big thing.
Most of the time, organizations want to choose Senior Developers because putting in some time, effort and budget is a significant investment.
Imagine all the training, certifications and exams…
It’s not something easy for most of the companies out there.
However, there’s a huge trend of hiring fresh graduates in consulting companies.
They train them around the Salesforce best practices and invest in them in the long run.
Considering that it’s mostly a win-win story for both the consultancy and the junior developers.
Gaining cross-functional experience
In consultancy companies, there are different aspects of projects like business analysis, project management, pre and post-sales etc.
In this case, technical consultants can combine their technical experience with business analysis skills to provide alternative solutions to their customers.
It’s definitely a great way to align their career with Salesforce and gain experience in different business-oriented skills.
That means Salesforce people can have different career paths, mostly by working with consultancy companies.
