Big Expectations - No Backup

I worked at Salesforce.com

Pros

The technology is on the leading edge. When Salesforce.com falls out of the lead, they're not afraid to invest to catch up or take over. They are willing to buy solutions when they don't think they can build them internally.

Cons

Career feedback and coaching is non-existent. If you're in a non-critical role, you're fine. If you have people depending on you, good luck with getting insight on how to improve. As other people have noted, it's very much who you know and how you play the game. If you are connected to the right people, the path gets much smoother than if you don't. Hours are long and the work expectations are borderline excessive.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus on the people. Focus on training. Help people achieve.
