    I have been working at Salesforce

    Pros

    good co-workers
    humane climate (mostly)
    good compensation

    Cons

    beware being perceived as "too radical" (trying to innovate here) in your proposals to management. it will limit your career incredibly fast.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    quit telling staff you want them to innovate, and then clearly chopping them off at the knees when they try.

    Former Employee - Product Manager in San Francisco, CA

    I worked at Salesforce

    Pros

    I like the focus on usability testing to ensure the products don't create pain and curses when customers sit down and use them.

    Cons

    Product metrics are really hard to come by - it could take 4 months+ just to learn if anyone is using what my team had built.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fund the product metrics team for quicker feedback on what's useful and what missed the mark so corrections can be made.
