I worked at Salesforce.com

Pros

Salesforce.com has a good work/life balance. The benefits and pay are excellent by industry standards. The workplace is dynamic.

Cons

The company resembles a cult. The employees bow the cult of the CEO and sing their praises of him at every opportunity. The company is undergoing growing pains as they try to adjust their internal systems to the companies rapid growth. As such, chaos reigns throughout IT and related support departments. Management appears clueless as to how to handle the situation.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Prioritize fixing internal problems in IT, HR, computer support before these departments implode. Improve management training and provide on-going coaching.

    Current Employee - Small Business Account Executive in San Francisco, CA

    I have been working at Salesforce.com

    Pros

    Salesforce.com is THE training ground for everything Sales. They are very good and pushing you to develop your professional skill set as well as getting you trained on a very honed selling system. The app you use everyday is what you sell as well so it's very easy to position it.

    Cons

    All the success has led to a lot of account executives in the various business segments so territories are small. It can be difficult to hit your quota numbers if you do not have a blue chip territory. Those typically go to the manager's favorites... so if you don't get along with your manager the possibility of hitting your quota drops. If you work hard though you can typically succeed there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is great at almost everything there. I don't know if I would offer a lot of advice to change what they do. They work very hard and make the best of a highly competitive job.

    Pros

    Aggressive growth, smart co-workers and top-notch technologies makes Salesforce.com a world in itself. In it's ideal downtown San Francisco location, everything is a step away.

    Cons

    Lots of smart people increase competition for a limited number of open jobs; a lot of outside hiring versus internal promotion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Secure internal growth to prevent an exodus of employees that helped build Salesforce.com into the brand and place it is today.
