    Pros

    It has good corporate culture, and understands that there are many stakeholders that need to be considered. Not just stockholders, but also employees, customers, society, etc.

    Cons

    Aside from Sales, almost everyone at the company works in Downtown San Francisco. There are a lot of local employees who like that, but it's a substantial commute for the rest of us. Nonetheless, Salesforce is good enough to be worth commuting for.

    Advice to Management

    Don't get bought out by a third party like Microsoft, Oracle, etc. Continue to emphasize

    Pros

    Surrounded by smart people
    Challenged everyday
    Good medical coverage
    Office in downtown
    Stock is going up and up and up

    Cons

    SalesForce use to give more stock, and I know that other companies like Microsoft give more stock now.
    It's a company making a lot of profit, but doesn't really give it back to employees.

    Pros

    Good compensation, work/life balance, smart engineers, some people have amazing views from their desks. Good about letting employees pretend to work from home. Lots of happy hours. Fun holiday parties.

    Cons

    Penny wise and pound foolish, such as not ordering enough food for engineering lunch meetings while having frequent extravagant sales and management offsites. In engineering, technology is either outdated or proprietary and painful to use. Developers are forced to use the proprietary technology of the month and often have to decide between obeying engineering leadership or building something that works that customers want. Tasks that should take seconds to execute can take weeks due to either painful and unnecessary processes, a giant monolithic architecture, or incompetent staff that will never be terminated. Company claims to be open to letting employees transfer within the company, but when they need relevant skillsets, they prefer outside candidates. While some QA are top notch, others are incapable of doing their job, and their managers praise them and get others to do their work for them.

    Advice to Management

    See ya.

    Pros

    Challenging work, extremely smart people, fast environment, excellent although not perfect technology platform. Best work-life balance in the industry. Supportive to volunteer work and activities.

    Cons

    The company in its fast-moving ways to reach 10-15 BN annual sales is loosing it's culture. It's culture of people, opportunity, diversity is slipping away due to too many Oracle executives coming over to push the company to 15 BN. Others are saying it feels like we are becoming numbers-focused rather than people!

    Advice to Management

    Don't loose focus of what made us so great! Is becoming part of the top-3 software companies in the world that great? We'll get there, but loosing our culture to reach a financial number is the death of what made us great!

    Flexible great people - awesome challenges. Solving real marketing problems. A tool well beyond many expectations with a platform to sce!

    Cons

    Crazy hours, few rewards, not a lot of support for women in leadership positions within product. Double standards across the organization.

    Keep up vision. Rethink a few key leadership positions that do not have support or respect of their down line team.

    Pros

    Great culture and team environment. The people are very smart and very engaged which makes managing and coaching a team fun and easy.

    Cons

    Would love to have some additional management training, but the one-on-one attention you get from leadership fills a lot of the gaps.
