Current Employee - Account Executive in San Francisco, CA
Current Employee - Account Executive in San Francisco, CA

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

Pros

Compensated well, and recognized for doing great work

Cons

Starting to tighten up incentive perks, i.e. used to pay annually for multi-year future dated orders and now they pulled the plug mid-year without notice to AEs. Due to expansive growth and HR executive departures culture is on a downswing.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Less dictatorship and panic around monthly close to maintain 30% revenue increase each quarter. Panic = stress and stress = Best employee departures

Recommends

Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Salesforce is great company to work for if you fall into one of these two buckets:

    1) A few years removed from college and you're looking to cut your teeth in software sales.

    2) You have been working for SFDC for 5+ years.

    Cons

    If you're an accomplished sales rep at another company and looking for a move, here are some things to note about SFDC. These apply if you're looking for an ESB, SMB, MM or Commercial Account Executive role at SFDC:

    1) Base salary is about 20-30% lower than most companies

    2) They will tell you that on target earnings (OTE) are attainable if you "create your own success." Translation: We expect "butts-in-seats" by 7 AM, and cold calls / BASHO emails being sent all day.

    3) Less than 2% of all new AE's reps hit OTE in their first two years (basically, expect to make a base salary). Ask this question during your interview.

    3) Your every move is monitored through a dashboard, and people with the most cold calls, call connects, meetings scheduled, etc. win small SPIFFs (Think "Boiler Room")

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are losing good people, so time to start acting like a big company.
