Current Employee - Senior Member of Technical Staff  in  San Francisco, CA
Current Employee - Senior Member of Technical Staff in San Francisco, CA

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

Pros

Exciting cutting edge and market leading technology
Excellent management support for career and personal advancement
Excellent perks and amenities
Very friendly culture of support and welcoming.

Cons

The workload gets intense pretty quickly
Fast growth means constant org changes,
The size of the company is much larger than it's "maturity". This can also be a pro in the sense of flexible processes, but it also means there are less than sufficient controls and standards for professionalism.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Trigger happy promotions are great, but there are way too many inflated titles without enough experience or competence to back it. When you consider a sampling of Principal MTSs for example, there is major discrepancy between their relative levels of experience and contribution.

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

    Pros

    I just joined Salesforce.com, and my experience has been excellent in every way. The onboarding process has been a breeze because the company uses the tools they sell which allows new hires to get up and running quickly. Specifically, the company uses Chatter groups where employees can find virtually all the information they need for any questions and get immediate responses, rather than spending 6 months trying to find out "who does what" within their new company. Furthermore, everybody I speak with seems to love working here and the company culture is very positive and supportive of employee success.

    Cons

    The only con is that I work from home and miss the social aspect of going into an office, but the collaboration tools Salesforce provides makes it easy to connect with other employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep innovating with product development and investing heavily in marketing and sales to bring in the best of the best...it's paying off tremendously
