    Good company in general, but the acquisitions make life harder

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

    Pros

    I worked for Pardot prior to it being acquired by Salesforce. They have a pretty good culture considering their size.

    Cons

    From the technology/infrastructure perspective, "Trust" (their word for security) seems to overrule anything else -- it gets in the way of work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on what you're good at and hold off on acquisitions until everything else is integrated.

    I worked at Salesforce full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great compensation. Very smart people.

    Cons

    Salesforce operates on the verge of Chaos. They act like a $3M company when its really a $3B company. Very little thought of planning goes in to anything. This drives a culture of groups just doing "something". This drives tons of inefficiency and work done for nothing.

    The company is extremely hierarchical. Asking questions or participating in the process is frowned upon. The top dogs of a group make a decision and its just go do it. There is no seat at the table for discussion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Slow down a tad to think your decisions through. You'll become much more efficient and make a lot more $$.
