Current Employee - Account Executive  in  San Francisco, CA
Current Employee - Account Executive in San Francisco, CA

I have been working at Salesforce.com full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Best reason: I'm in sales and its the name "salesforce" alone draws attention from prospective buyers. Great support and team selling systems in place. I have made more money every year since starting here.
Product portfolio continues to increase, so lots more money to make....

Cons

Sometimes, it can be a little to fast paced.. We never stop. If you like change, its a great place because there is always change here!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Awesome company!

    Pros

    Working in sales, there is an abundance of options when it comes to career direction. Managers act as champions, but you must build your own brand

    Cons

    Compensation model and caps are brutal

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less meetings more time for the phones.

    Former Employee - Finance Accounting  in  San Francisco, CA
    Former Employee - Finance Accounting in San Francisco, CA

    I worked at Salesforce.com full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - short work hours
    - benefits are same as other companies

    Cons

    - Unqualified management often with no experience/education in areas they are managing

    - Aggressive culture where people work against each other instead of working as a team

    - Blatant discrimination - behind closed doors reviews and promotions are highly subjective and based on non PC/HR compliant reasons

    -Uneven leveling, titles make no sense - some managers doing entry level analyst work while another manager is doing director level work because they will not get promoted, see above

    - Bizarre focus on yearly goal creation. There are meetings about meetings about how the staff will create their goals. Sometimes there are multiple day meetings about how goals will be filled out.

    - Unusually high manual processes for complicated accounting processes. Automation is non-existent everything is basically done on excel

    - High turnover of qualified staff, people leaving within months of starting

    - You will not find the smartest or brightest of silicon valley in this finance org

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Culture will not change
    - My advise to prospective applicants is to move on to the next opportunity
    - Ask about turnover in your interview. They will tell you people leave because they do not fit in the 'culture' but the truth is the environment is toxic

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
