No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Salesforce full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Industry leading solutions and transformative technologies that really do make a difference for companies. Solid support team for the account executives.

Cons

Boiler room mentality when it comes to sales. Tremendous amount of cold calling, thin territories, monthly close cadence and overbearing management make this one of the worst sales jobs. Low number of new salespeople make their number. Evidenced by high turnover in the sales group.

Advice to Management

Treat your salespeople as more than interchangeable parts. Set them up for success by equitably distributing accounts.

    I worked at Salesforce full-time

    Pros

    Like Minded Talent Recruitment Process

    Cons

    "Ol Boy Network Structure" live and well.

    Advice to Management

    Interview the best candidates for the position and weigh individuals on the criteria for the job, not if they know someone that works for the company.
