I have been working at Salesforce

Pros

Company is growing, lots of enthusiasm in the market. Still hiring, even in the tough economy. Product team is always innovating - lots of exciting things are announced regularly. Exciting place to work - customers are evangelists, companies eagerly seek to do business with us. Very different from most software companies that are yearning for customers and press attention. Dynamic, fast moving environment. Busier than most companies.

Cons

Innovation means constant change - not all employees can succeed in the environment, it's very demanding. Chaotic environment, less experienced management team. Focus is on growth. Some infrastructure in place but it's not the priority.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to hire more seasoned management, evolve the culture.

    Terrible place to work, unless you're straight out of college and looking to hook-up with hot girls.

    I worked at Salesforce

    Pros

    Compensation. They pay well. But the bullsh#t isn't worth the pay. I could deal with it for about a year. Was just killing time after that till my options vested and then got out. Terrible place to work.

    Cons

    Politics. Lots of it. Backstabbing. Lots of it. Lots of egos that think that they're gods gift to the world. That's what created the dot-com boom/bust and that's what will do in this company. It's just software people... get a grip. They like to hire contractors to "shadow" full-time people and threaten to replace you with the contractor if you didn't do exactly what they want.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop fostering an environment where politics is more important than what is actually being produced.
