Slack

Salesforce has an "exempt" and "non-exempt" employment status. Non-exempt means the role is "hourly" and therefore eligible for overtime. What are the disadvantages/risks to this type of contract? I'm a Customer Success Manager with Slack, and had a standard employment contract prior. Thanks!

    Pros

    The people at Slack are smart and cohesive, they have handled the Salesforce acquisition very well

    Cons

    Slack is a very unique environment, I believe it would be a benefit if industry practices and standards were implemented more at a strategic level. This would create better cohesion and clear direction by managment.
