Former Employee - Senior Account Executive in New York, NY

I worked at Salesforce full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Great company from a technology perspective. Great internal use of that technology - they drink their own champagne. Smart people on the west coast.

Cons

attrition problem - great people leave
lack of career ladder - mgmt is typically middle of the road IBM MSFT or ORCL folks that are trying to recreate those bloated enterprise firms.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

listen to employees, fire yourselves and hire inspired leaders, go back to bloated firm.
