Featured Review

Current Employee - Senior Technical Account Manager

I have been working at Salesforce full-time for less than a year

Pros

I found the CEO’s tenet that business drives change to be expressed at Salesforce to its best possible effect on many levels no matter ones personal leanings. Extraordinary!

Cons

Growing pains and process gaps abound with an increasingly wide footprint.

Advice to Management

Continue to recruit top personnel with great benefits and compensation.

Current Employee - Investigator

I have been working at LinkedIn full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Good base, good RSU grant, great perks, major focus on wlb.

Cons

Can be bureaucratic and slow moving sometimes. Not confident about the long term viability of our products and services in their current shape.
