    Pros

    Working for salesforce you have the opportunity to sell products that ultimately can transform an organization. Their flagship products such as sales cloud and service cloud are both highly regarded by analysts and customers. Great benefits and lots of perks.

    Cons

    Have you ever felt like just a number to a company? Well once you start your job at salesforce you become just one of the many thousands of AEs they have hired. You will be given a territory that will ultimately dictate how well you perform. Some AEs are given 2-3 territories while others are given just one. Regardless of your territory, you will have the exact same quota as those with larger ones. Its a numbers game to management. Your manager will want 2-3 of his or her AEs to do really well while everyone else struggles.

    You will have a monthly quota, your manager will be tasked with grinding you every month for every last dollar possible you can bring in. Not to mention 3 quarter ends and 1 year end, which many managers make you feel like the world is ending thereafter. Forget about a vacation at month end, quarter end or god forbid you have to miss January 31st.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start treating your employees like humans and not just numbers. You hire the best of the best sales people and then somehow think they will all perform above and beyond their quota. Stop slicing territories and expecting to receive double the revenue the next fiscal year by adding a body.
