I have been working at Salesforce full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

World's most innovative company. The pay.

Cons

The bigger it gets the more it loses its edginess & appeal.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't let salesforce become the next Oracle. Promote more from within. Find better ways to communcate down rhe food chain. Cost-cutting has its costs.

    Pros

    Great company with an outstanding CEO. People work hard and play hard at Salesforce. The people are great and the work is very rewarding.

    Cons

    Growth has taken a serious toll on Salesforce. The culture has become that of Oracle. Very political. Not nearly as fun as it was a few years ago.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Live up to the values that you promote. If Salesforce is really going to be a company that looks to the engineers to drive technical direction, let them do so.

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

    Pros

    Decent product. Great market share and sales engine.

    Cons

    Super political. Culture used to be high in accountability and collaboration. Now it is very competitive and dysfunctional. Leaders spend a lot of their time trying to take down their peers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on the culture. Stop bringing in people from the outside who want to make their mark at the expense. Prioritize leaders who get things down with vision, strategy, and execution instead of dysfunctional competition.
