Advice to ManagementAdvice

Invest in fixing the severely broken platform if you'd like to innovate outside of CRM and call-center support.

    I worked at Salesforce full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    No longer a start-up, it's a big company now. Lots of friends working there. Being located in the heart of San Francisco is a plus. A ggod place to get your career started.

    Cons

    As a big company, it was harder to get things done. Executives are not always in sync. It seems they prefer to hire from the outside rather than promote from within. Lots of changes going on these days.

    Pros

    It's Salesforce. 1st mover in the market, a wall street darling..it has a good name.....Great snacks...nice offices

    Cons

    Dysfunctional management, mixed messages, super political, many products don't connect w/each other....It's a marketing machine. The biggest slide ware company in SV. HR is all about protecting the VP's who are driving to get the #'s in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    none really - they don't listen anyway
