"Work hard, play hard" -Great pay for those who perform well -Training and development is unbelievable. -Great mentor program and great managers for the most part -Very structured promotion and career advancement structure (typically 10-12 months as a Sales Rep and 12-15 months as an Enterprise Business Rep) -Not a cheap company (you know this if you went to Dreamforce or the holiday parties) -Tons of happy hours and events -Lots of free food and great snacks -Great location in San Fran

Cons

-Becoming very large very quickly -Very competitive (all performances are visible to everyone) -Sales roles are very numbers based and you sometimes feel replaceable -Tough to take vacations in sales but they are trying to make changes to improve this

    Pros

    People - Its all about collaboration and teamwork. Opportunities - You are in full control of your career and can move and grow as you desire.

    Cons

    Rapid growth can lead to some on-boarding frustrations. However, this is a very minor con.


  2. Great sales environment, must be prepared for transparency and frequent territory / account reviews.

    I worked at Salesforce full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Sales culture, hipsters, great product, happy customers, company uses the app in all aspects of the business, work on on your smartphone, ipad, or PC and be productive

    Cons

    Frequent territory and account shifts, execs assume all prospects "get" the cloud, too many new products and features in beta or pilot

    Advice to Management

    Focus on improving the core product and integrating all of the products together. Spending too much time trying to port Facebook features for the enterprise.
