    I have been working at Salesforce full-time

    Pros

    -Huge emphasis on the importance of charitable giving and being environmentally sustainable (backed by 6 paid volunteer days per employee annually, $5000 annual employee match for charitable giving, frequent internal charitable events) -Prioritizes engaging employees by aligning personal career goals with each employee's duties and encouraging movement between functions and departments throughout the company -Incredibly intelligent workforce: Salesforce is able to use its strong brandname to hire only the top talent and as a result has an environment where you are constantly challenged and learning, which continuously develops your own skill set. (Less than 1% of applicants receive employment offers) -Strong community environment: Salesforce has been able to build a corporate family unlike any company I've been a part of before. People honestly care for each other and will go out of their way to look out for past and present employees. Salesforce focuses on working as a team rather than separate individuals which develops a sense of inclusion. -Incredible parties: Salesforce certainly caters to a more extroverted, lively and connected personality by having frequent social and networking events throughout the year -$100/mth employee fitness benefit and health benefits that are largely absorbed by the company. Free yoga classes and espresso bars are also offered in some offices -Offices are generally situated in the heart of cities rather than in suburbs

    Cons

    -Headcount growing perhaps too quickly which could transform the community feel to a more corporate environment -Does not offer full meals (light snacks and beverages are provided) -Signals of a more corporate future ahead evidenced by a shift away from local vendors to their global competitors

    Advice to Management

    Although we're growing quickly, make sure Salesforce is able to retain it's small community feel rather than becoming a rigid corporation like many older tech companies

    Lead Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Salesforce (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    - 4 rounds of Phone Screening (1 manager, 3 engineers) - Remote Programming Test - Onsite interview - 6 rounds (2 technical, 2 managerial & 1HR) The HR said they wanted me on board and she is working on the offer. It's been > 2 months and I am still waiting for the offer. Their HR team really SUCKS. They shouldn't leave the candidates hanging on the cliff for this long.

    Interview Questions

    • Most of the technical questions were around programming/datastructure fundementals, unit tests, recursion etc and few systems design and behavioural questions   Answer Question
