Get ready for some serious office politics.

Sales Associate (Former Employee)
San Francisco, CA

ProsYou'll get the chance to work with some very bright people and have a well-respected name on your resume.

ConsOffice politics here are killer. If you're great at backstabbing your colleagues this is the company for you. Little attention paid to strong performers. Instead, it's all about who can brown-nose the most. If you're good at this type of thing, salesforce will be great for you. However, if you're looking to be awarded for your achievements rather than your networking skills, look elsewhere.

Advice to Senior ManagementThey have some very bright and experienced people working under them. But more attention needs to be paid to the way promotions and salaries are being awarded.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Though in reality the territories… Advice to Senior Management: Listen to your employees. Too much emphasis is spent on managing revenue not people. Try to maintain consistency in the territories… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More

    toxic work environment

    Director of Engineering (Former Employee)
    San Francisco, CA

    I worked at Salesforce.com


    Pros: Software as a service is a hot space; process is best of breed; excellent… Cons: incredibly political; upper management shouts a lot; most managers are terrifed to even speak. promotions are based on who you know and how loud… Advice to Senior Management: Much less shouting; treat developers and mid level managers more humanely; resolve the broken revenue model of just hire more salespeople as it doesn't work;… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
