I worked at Salesforce.com full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Great compensation, energy and culture. Integrated philanthropy from day one of your job and most managers and teams encourage it throughout your career at the company. Powerful tool that's customizable and cutting edge. Always innovative and usually a safe space to take risks a be creative.

Cons

Lots of ego and sometimes collaboration is a challenge. Decisions are made that sometimes don't seem logical and affect the success of individuals and teams.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to your direct reports and put ego aside. Provide genuine growth opportunities for employees so they don't get stale in their roles.

    Current Employee - Account Executive in San Francisco, CA

    I have been working at Salesforce.com full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great compensation, lots of mobility win the company, great coaches among sales leadership. Market leading products and relentless pace of innovation that addresses problems customers didn't even know they had. Holiday parties are amazing with performers like Cyndi Lauper and the bare naked ladies. CEO just gave out 500 tickets to employees for game 2 of the SF Giants in the World Series. 5 weeks of vacation, paid paternity leave, time off for foundation work.

    Cons

    Can be a grind, success depends on territory (but that is the life of sales, not unique to salesforce). Moving into management can take a while. Resources like sales overlay teams for complementary products, sales engineering, are scarce or not competent and your succes can depend on them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please train the acquired companies teams (radian 6, jigsaw) like you train us and hire more sales engineers.

    I have been working at Salesforce.com as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Very nice location and facilities
    Young workforce, energized and friendly
    Pretty flexible and willing to work with your scheduled for a 9~5 type of job
    competitive and cultivating environment

    Cons

    If you can't network and not a people person it might not be for you
    you're going to need to take your work home with you
    Unless you're going into Sales, it's difficult to get a full time position right now
