    I have been working at Salesforce.com full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great products that customers want and that actually work.

    Unbelievable talented co-workers who feel like they are doing something meaningful.

    Brilliant senior leadership, making the right strategic moves.

    Cons

    Support (CFL) is spread too thin and is no longer meeting their commitments opening the door to competitive threats and attrition, making it difficult to earn the renewal bonus (~40% of variable comp).

    Inconsistent territory assignment makes it difficult to build and execute a pipeline because you are constantly starting over, making it difficult to hit your quota.

    Recruiting too many regional managers from IBM. Not the great thought and process leaders of the past, but rather the people who are best at managing their own managers; lead through fear and threats; and care more about themselves than their customers or team. They are not a resource to help sell, and more often get in the way altogether.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consistency counts. Define your coverage and support models before it's too late.

    I have been working at Salesforce.com full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great benefits, great people...lots of opportunity. CRM system works great. Great collaboration among colleagues who are very willing to help, when not busy themselves.

    Cons

    Lack of patience. Treats all business units like CRM, when not all business models are the same. No training provided. "Here's your computer, here's your patch...good luck"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be flexible. Don't try to make the square peg fit into the round hole. Adjust your business strategy based on the market you are attempting to penetrate.
