Chaos

Director (Former Employee)
San Francisco, CA

ProsGreat compensation. Very smart people.

ConsSalesforce operates on the verge of Chaos. They act like a $3M company when its really a $3B company. Very little thought of planning goes in to anything. This drives a culture of groups just doing "something". This drives tons of inefficiency and work done for nothing.

The company is extremely hierarchical. Asking questions or participating in the process is frowned upon. The top dogs of a group make a decision and its just go do it. There is no seat at the table for discussion.

Advice to Senior ManagementSlow down a tad to think your decisions through. You'll become much more efficient and make a lot more $$.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Pros: The best product by far...bar none. The best visionaries, technical ops (the guys that keep the platform up and running), and internal platform engineers… Cons: "Fillers". I call them "fillers" because that's what they are...people that were hired in haste to simple fill roles in an organization that is… Advice to Senior Management: Slow the "Marketeering". Equity for the "Do-ers" not the "New-ers". Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More

    Pros: Culture, People, Passion, Results-Driven, Customer Company, Great CEO, Work-hard/Play-Hard, Rewarding, Love… Cons: Constant change results in lost communication.
