    Pros

    Great facilities, benefits, and competitive pay.

    Cons

    Marketing org is completely disjointed. Company likes to think they are start-up because it's the "cool" thing to say, but it's very far from being one. You cannot be a 16,000+ employee company and think you can operate like a start up. That just creates unnecessary chaos. They have all the resources they need, but yet every day every single employee is constantly scrambling. There is something inherently wrong here. They hire overly hyperactive people which that energy is often displaced and channeled in unproductive ways. Be prepared to spend 90% of your time in meetings and 10% doing your actual job. High churn and lots of popularity contests going on.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on developing your employees and hire better leaders. Stop using Chatter as platform to call out certain people to throw them under the bus. Seen this happen to too many people across different business units. Benioff seems more focused on his philanthropic work and his image, rather than what's happening in the business and the people in them.

    Pros

    Pay is better than average....

    Cons

    Politics rule here. Performance is based on how well you play political games.

    100% a boys club and HR will not respond to harassment complaints.

    Cons

    Salespeople churn and burn

    Advice to Management

    25 years in IT sales. Never seen a revolving door for AEs like this before. Ever. I knew it was bad when a two year anniversary AE received a major shout out from management for this achievement.

  6. I love working with the top talent in the industry.

    Pros

    Salesforce.com is dynamic, fun, innovative, and fast-paced. The customer comes first, and that's not just lip service. I love working with the top talent in the industry. I'm so proud of our founder and CEO, Marc Benioff.

    Cons

    It's hard to think of any! We need a barista in each remote office...? :)

    Advice to Management

    Keep the culture! Don't let us grow too big and forget our roots. Take special care of the remote offices.

    Pros

    Lots of perks. OK pay scale.

    Cons

    Management completely out-of-touch with troops on the ground. Almost completely metrics-based performance evaluations (despite what management says) bleeds focus away from more valuable goals, breeds unhealthy competition.

    Extremely slow career growth. Massive overhauls to departmental organization every six months, making a shell game out of picking a career path within the company.

    Advice to Management

    Try hiring some lower management from within. A core management team who doesn't understand what their teams actually do can't manage effectively.
