Some of the smartest professionals I've ever worked with

  • Comp & Benefits
  • Work/Life Balance
  • Senior Management
  • Culture & Values
  • Career Opportunities

Former Employee - Copy Editor in San Francisco, CA

I worked at Salesforce as a contractor (more than an year)

Pros

Colleagues are not just intelligent and insightful, they are generally genuinely nice. It seems to be part of the culture there, at least in the division I was in. Virtually everyone seemed happy in their work and satisfied with how they were treated by the company.

Cons

The company is now large enough that any one individual (outside of senior management) has a challenge in making a measurable, marked impact.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I don't see critical advice to give -- senior management seems to be getting most things right most of the time, and CEO Marc Benioff is a genuine visionary who sees opportunity before it's fully manifest to most other leaders.

    I have been working at Salesforce

    Pros

    Employee stock purchase program
    Great CEO
    Good location in SF
    Good health care benefits
    1:1:1 model

    Cons

    Not competitive base salary - base salary has increased $2K with 3 promotions in 4 years

    All about making your manager and their manager more money. Compensation is not competitive anymore

    Culture has shifted and fun has been sucked out of the job.

    Declined in quality of new hires and the next generation of Salesforce employees and leaders.

    New leadership

    No work life balance

    Increase middle management creating more red tape and dissatisfied employees

    Salesforce say we are about diversity but 1 person is of color and 2 women on the executive committee. And we don't get MLK day off as a holiday

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Back to the basics of why Salesforce was a fun and cool place to work. Increase salary and perks to be more competitive to retain your loyal employees or else they will continue to leave.

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Senior Account Executive in New York, NY
    Current Employee - Senior Account Executive in New York, NY

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

    Pros

    Exciting market space with leadership position, high growth potential
    Our customers love our products and look for more opportunities to leverage the platform
    Salesforce Foundation 1:1:1, Charity Donation Matching, Employee Perks - fantastic
    Onboarding process is really well done. Probably due to the sheer number of new hire bootcamps!

    Cons

    Territory carving is a mess.
    Veterans have the lions share of accounts- install and whitespace yet all AEs have the same quota.
    Small percentage of AEs actually make OTE....if you do then you're in Club! I'd rather have a real shot at hitting OTE!!
    Multiyear bookings result in a higher quota the following year that actually negates any increase in year 1 compensation...why? where's the incentive

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Level the playing field acoss the team. You've hired senior people so give the newer people a fighting chance.
    Align the assignments and quotas so there's more than 10% making quota.
    Club should require more than hitting OTE

    Doesn't Recommend
