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

Pros

Fast-paced, smart people, innovative company. The best technology in the enterprise software industry, great marketing, and a killer sales team adds up to continued success. The salesforce foundation and 1/1/1 model are inspiring.

Cons

Very fast paced, which has both pros and cons. So many ideas and priorities -- sometimes has trouble focusing. Long hours. Cross-organizational collaboration is challenging.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Do whatever it takes to avoid becoming slow and bureaucratic as the company grows.

    Pros

    Comp was good. Innovative products.

    Cons

    SFDC is struggling to figure out how to be a big company.
    Has hard-nosed, win at all costs Oracle-type culture. You need to decide if you're into that.
    Sales mgmt has no problem berating entire teams in conference calls.
    Mgmt within the Platform team is unfocused and not very seasoned.
    Company turns a blind eye to hyper aggressive field sales people who run over their fellow employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To Marc - take a hard look at your Platform mgmt leadership. Is *she* (hint hint) really the type of person you want to lead this team?? Lots of people have left due to her incompetence. She's not a leader, although AF does put a lot of energy into managing up.

    Pros

    User Experience group HAD a great culture. Very good in foundation work. Great, well respected and visionary CEO. Great company location.

    Cons

    In last 10 months the team has become very political. Good work is not appreciated. Don't join at this group right now. No problems with the company but LOTS of problems with the user experience, interaction design group. Many people have left this group in last 6 months due to bad management.
