Just Named the #1 most innovative company in the world two years running
CRM is top of mind of C-Level executives
We are #1 in this space and continue to introduce innovative products and business applications

Chicago is a new office for Salesforce.com. The company is trying hard to maintain a small company feel and culture but it is a challenge with over 8500 employees.

Advice to Management

Keep bringing in the best talent!

    Pros

    Great compensation, energy and culture. Integrated philanthropy from day one of your job and most managers and teams encourage it throughout your career at the company. Powerful tool that's customizable and cutting edge. Always innovative and usually a safe space to take risks a be creative.

    Cons

    Lots of ego and sometimes collaboration is a challenge. Decisions are made that sometimes don't seem logical and affect the success of individuals and teams.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your direct reports and put ego aside. Provide genuine growth opportunities for employees so they don't get stale in their roles.

    Current Employee - Account Executive in San Francisco, CA

    I have been working at Salesforce full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great compensation, lots of mobility win the company, great coaches among sales leadership. Market leading products and relentless pace of innovation that addresses problems customers didn't even know they had. Holiday parties are amazing with performers like Cyndi Lauper and the bare naked ladies. CEO just gave out 500 tickets to employees for game 2 of the SF Giants in the World Series. 5 weeks of vacation, paid paternity leave, time off for foundation work.

    Cons

    Can be a grind, success depends on territory (but that is the life of sales, not unique to salesforce). Moving into management can take a while. Resources like sales overlay teams for complementary products, sales engineering, are scarce or not competent and your succes can depend on them.

    Advice to Management

    Please train the acquired companies teams (radian 6, jigsaw) like you train us and hire more sales engineers.
