Pros

Salesforce is a decidedly non-political environment where people work together to solve problems regardless of rank. The company defines the Software as a Service space and continues to innovate with the recent introductions of Platform as a Service, Salesforce Ideas and Google App integration to name just a few. There are lots of exciting things to work on here. Salesforce is also committed to philanthropy and not only encourages, but helps facilitate the donation of up to 1% of each of its employee's time to the causes they care about.

Cons

The company is committed to regularly delivering products that are of high quality and delivered on time. That means that the pace and volume of work is significant. This is not a great place to work if you are just looking to put in your time. That said, the company accommodates flexible schedules and really does care about work-life balance.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the good work. Senior management has thus far been able to deliver on the big promises it makes to its employees, its customers and Wall Street. As long as that continues to be true, I'm happy.

    Pros

    location, advance opportunity, money, benefits, industry leader, million dollar view of the bay.

    Cons

    sickening politics, lousy middle managers, too many incompetent young people in senior roles, too many people doing no work. yes, there about a third of this company doesn't have a job description and doesn't do any real work. There are VPs with no direct reports. yes, believe it or not.

    if you are starting your career, go some place else. mid career workers with blue chip experience elsewhere, this might be a place to come in and institute some discipline.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    be more open in your decision-making, don't choose favorites and promote them at the expense of others, and get rid of young people with no experience in high roles.

    Pros

    The team at SFDC is very strong in the technology group, and not too big. The product we're building is great, and has great potential if we're successful.

    Cons

    Because of the relatively small team, there's a lot for everyone to do, and that leads to long hours. This is better than having a lot of people, though, since you will end up with more mediocre staff dragging the talented people down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the train on the tracks, and maybe go home a little earlier on average guys!
