    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

    Current Employee - Software Engineer in San Francisco, CA

    I have been working at Salesforce full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    - great benefits
    - great location
    - internal mobility
    - relaxed culture

    Cons

    - too many teams working on the same problems, ignorant of each other
    - too many top-down directives that disrupt teams
    - too long a chain of middle management--communication between teams is ineffective or non-existent
    - infrastructure has not scaled with the company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management seems dramatically disconnected from what actually goes on

    Recommends
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
