    Pros

    Depth of expertise of coworkers, senior management listens, upward mobility seems optimistic, company is growing rapidly, they have beer in the office

    Cons

    None so far, but I guess cross-training in different roles would allow for better structure and career path planning. Current structure encourages shadowing, but there is no formal process in place.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, but work on developing clear career paths and ways to plan for upward mobility

    Pros

    Great place to work. I love the culture, the fast pace, and the change is constant!

    Cons

    Benefit disparities, and post-acquisition it seems like career paths are a bit hazy. No one is certain what initiatives will live on or not.

    Advice to Management

    Isn't it time for the Indy Tower already??! :)

    Cons

    Since the acquisition by Salesforce there have been lots of layoffs, so everyone is a little on edge.

    Pros

    Nice benefits, great events, fun team.

    Cons

    Was acquired so there was some frustration in the lack of information received during the process but that's to be expected.

    Pros

    Like many in Indianapolis, getting hired at ET was like the pinnacle of working in local tech. With amazing benefits and agile teams, it's no wonder the company grew so quickly and hired so many kind and talented folks. It's still a better place to work than almost anywhere else in Indy... at least if you don't get laid off.

    Cons

    Nowadays, things are completely different as ET gets 100% assimilated into Salesforce. It's a shame that the orange culture we all loved is going by the wayside. A large number of people have recently been laid off as part of the integration, and the company culture is just much less warm and innovative. Now it takes many levels of bureaucracy to get things done and it's more of a cutthroat environment.

    Advice to Management

    Let the orange people be orange. I wish this rating could be of the old ET, because that was a truly great company.

    Pros

    There are lots of great people in every area. Most coworkers are friendly, intelligent and passionate. There are fun problems to work on. The culture is great.

    Cons

    Fast growth has led to certain challenges, specifically in terms of onboarding and complexity. It also feels like we're an afterthought to Salesforce. We're starting to get some of their benefits, but salary and especially bonus discrepancies continue to be the norm according to Glassdoor reports.

    Advice to Management

    If we're all in with Salesforce, let's be all in. A student loan refinancing program like Apple recently introduced would be life changing for many.
