    Pros

    * You get to switch teams once a while.

    Cons

    * Engineers are not being treated as well as in most other companies.
    * Weak leadership in engineering. CEO rarely discuss his vision with the engineers.
    * Lousy coffee, the #1 friend for engineers.
    * Not working on state-of-the-art technology problem.
    * Very few group activities for Engineers.
    * Very few tech talks for engineers to enrich their knowledge.
    * The technology used is very old, you're not very likely to keep in touch with the latest technology trend.
    * Not a good place for recent college graduations that wants to work on cutting edge stuff.
    * Compensation is not competitive.
    * There is an internal grievance board but no one is paying any attention.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    * Pay more attention to retaining talented people.
    * Show some respects to engineers. Try to promote innovation, collaborations, and encourage personal contribution.

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

    Pros

    - smart, fun people
    - great location to work
    - flexible work schedules in some depts.
    - good compensation and benefits
    - dynamic, successful, growing company
    - they throw a great party
    - time off for volunteering/corporate philanthropy

    Cons

    - bad work/life balance
    - working in G&A is not valued
    - leaders earned promos based on who they know and how they self-promote rather than quality
    - "art of war" mentality
    - boys club/female leadership minimal at best
    - titles are very similar to old school banking; there are so many layers of VPs it's mind boggling

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    measure performance on results, not those who are good at marketing themselves
