    Pros

    Good pay and good benefits. With a family and children, benefits are an important part of the package and Salesforce does a very good job in this area.

    Cons

    I would like to get more RSUs on a continual basis. Other companies in the Bay Area provide continuing RSU refreshes, but this is not a given at Salesforce, making it much easier to leave the company.

    Advice to Management

    More retention should be build in with the pay structure.

    Pros

    Good base pay for interns, awesome kitchen/snacks, plus free housing and a very competitive benefits package (full medical/dental/vision)

    Cons

    It can definitely feel like you're a cog in a very big machine. It's very easy to feel lost or have your supervisors lose you.

    Advice to Management

    Don't hire 300 interns if you're going to pay most of them a lot of money to do very little work for you. It feels like a bad choice.

    Pros

    - amazing 1:1:1 model where you can have donations matched (up to 5K), apply for team grants (up to 5 or 10K) and get 48 hours of volunteer work a year
    - great educational benefits and encouraged continuous learning
    - fun place to work, always something fun going on

    Cons

    - promotion system seems vague, no idea what to do to move on up
    - pay is lower than I was hoping for when moving to this expensive city

    Advice to Management

    Keep encouraging women to develop their confidence to move up. Make a clear and concise promotion stream so employees aren't feeling stuck in a rut. Reward those who want to step up and want to take on challenges.

    Paid time of for volunteering and floating holidays are a great perk.

    Pros

    There's no denying that Salesforce has experienced great success and that the office culture, especially at HQ, is fantastic. Super smart talent, good benefits, equitable compensation. Awesome internal perks and great focus on providing diversity in the workplace.

    Cons

    Company is over-reliant on the heroic effort of its individuals in operations and development teams. There can be burn-out. Some departments struggle with too many people who want to manage or coordinate work, and not enough people to actually get it done. Unpredictable hiring freezes will often negatively impact a group's ability to scale.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring and travel freezes or find a way to budget for them more accurately. Redirect project management resources into actual developers or analysts to get work done

    Pros

    Great technology, industry leader, dominates the market space.

    Cons

    Office driven culture, very transactional, you will not make money if you are put in a bad territory. Office politics are some of the worst I have ever experienced. Zero diversity, no women managers.

    Advice to Management

    Diversify the office and bring in different types of people and personalities.
