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

Pros

Salesforce continuously offers non-traditional benefits to engage and elate employees. Point in fact is the recent ticket giveaway to the great Bridge School Benefit concert. This happens year round with charity, athletic and other events - the gifts keep on coming.

Cons

None - salesforce.com has it's good and bad just like any other company and is not perfect; however, the good far outweigh the bad as salesforce.com tries to improve year after year. They listen to us.

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

    Pros

    Competitive salary, good benefits; good stock value growth. Good networking opportunities for entrepreneurs

    Cons

    Backstabbing, unnecessarily agressive culture; horribly inept middle management. Rapid hiring without adequate training have left many people working on unnecessary and unproductive projects

    Advice to Management

    Require training for middle managers to teach them how to work with, enable and promote the development of their reports; tie managers success to their reports success. Make requirements for advancement transparent and applicable to all employees.

    No work/life balance, cog in the machine, poor management, but you meet some great people

    I worked at Salesforce full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Formalized trainings, you're surrounded by some brilliant minds. Lot's of cool events.

    Cons

    Growing the army was such a concern they often hired the wrong types for management. I loved my peers but managers seemed under qualified.

    Advice to Management

    Realize you have some great talent under you and you're paying 25% less than most sales jobs that aren't relying on a sexy brand as a concession for salary.
