    Pros

    Continues to grow, product in high demand and customers continue to add licenses Diversity of Product is moving beyond just CRM finally breaking .Net and other platforms hold to allow for customized projects Huge downtown campus resembling NYU. Youll always run into someone who knows someone at Salesforce in SF, but probably never in an area you know.

    Cons

    Managers are allowed to yell, scream and carry out vendettas against employees Managers are allowed to disallow starting bonuses and regular bonuses at whims even if such is layed out in offer letter Managers are allowed to send irate emails after approved vacation is taken and while and during you are on holiday. Managers can arbitrarily tell you you need to work 12 hours a day for months on end. Absolutely no relief , no care if you have children or family Managers are allowed to pay 'respects' to female employees through coy comments and retorts. Ramp up/Training can be curtailed because a manager denies you the right to properly learn the project, thus making you unable to do your job Massive backstabbing by those around you and use of such by Management to control the players of their group, hearsay and mobbing. Managers are allowed to deny routine doctor visits based on how they see fit If you are granted remote work away from HQ, many have later been let go due to refusing to later relocate back to Corporate because a new manager takes over. No care about quality of work, all about quantity and hitting your dashboard gauges like a If you are burnt out and psychologically spent, you will be given a short time to resign or you will be fired. This will involve many rounds of bullying to make you sign a resignation letter. You will later be given one months severance if you sign a waiver. And the rub? All the managers were promoted. My result? Massive Financial loss due to doctors, psychologists, meds and inability to work for a year due to bullying. Here's to your 1:1:1 program Benihoff.
