I applied through an employee referral and the process took 5 months - interviewed at Salesforce.com in August 2013.
Interview Details –
The interview process was the most involved that I have experienced. My application was promoted by an internal employee, so I skipped the interview with the recruiter. My first interview was a 45 minute phone interview with the hiring manager. I then had about 4 more phone interviews with 7 additional individuals over the course of 2 months. These ranged from peer interviews to directors and above. Once I made it through these, I had an in-person interview with the hiring manager that went well.
The longest part was waiting for the headcount to be approved. The whole process took almost 5 months from application to offer, but most of that time was due to the position being approved as well as the budget.

Negotiation Details – I was given a verbal offer and a short negotiation occurred. I was very happy with what was presented, so I didn't have to really negotiate hard on the salary. Once I accepted verbally, a written offer was sent over for my approval.
Great benefits, great people. Salesforce is still a place where individual contributors can make a great impact on the business bottom line. This is especially true for software engineers in R&D.
