Pros

SFDC provides a really fun and dynamic work environment. The core product is fanatastic and the company's vision is incredibly promising. There's a strong sense that employees are part of history in the making - you can definitely feel this vibe when walking the halls. Little doubt "SFDC" will be synonymous for changing the enterprise software paradigm and planting SaaS in the main stream business world. Pretty cool stuff.

Cons

There is an excessive amount of disorganization and politics. Every day is another marketing event fire drill - merely a result of CEO who is a master marketer for better or worse. Learning to navigate the organization requires a long ramp time.

Advice to Management

Bring in more seasoned executives with Fortune 500 experience. Put an ESPP program in place. Triple investment in product development and get more aggressive on the acquisition front.

    Pros

    -Innovative company where people actually strive to make CRM better and more intuitive instead of just adding needless bells and whistles. -Competitive salaries make it worth working 12 hours per day. -The company is very young and it shows in the energy around campus. -If you are looking for a place to show your creativeness and innovation then Salesforce is the right place for you. Product management solicits feedback from the employees to make the product better. They are genuinely interested in what the customer has to say. The fact that the Idea Exchange is one of the main drivers for product enhancements shows that Salesforce.com cares about the customer.

    Cons

    -Typical struggles of a fast growing company. -Old School Employees vs. New Employees mentality. There is a strange dichotomy between veterans and newbies (I am considered someone that joined in the middle - 3 years). -At times you get the sense that upper management might only be out for the stock price. -Divisions are very silo-ed and there is not a ton of communication or full company interaction. -Management and Training needs to do a better job of communicating new features and functionality to all levels. -I find that the work/life balance tends to sway heavily towards the work side.

    Advice to Management

    More structured communication so the message is the same from top to bottom.


  2. Great company to work for

    Awesome company, incredible products, smart people.

    Cons

    Very fast-paced culture. This makes it an exciting place to be but can be overwhelming at times.

    Advice to Management

    We've got a tremendous army of people. Invest your time and budget in developing them.
