What Employees Say
I have been working at Salesforce full-time for less than a year
Please are great and super supportive. When you join the company, everyone is there for you, to help you learn and do the best you can. 6 months in, it's still the same. In addition, the culture of... the company is great. Not only are you encouraged to support your colleagues but you're also encouraged to help the community. Volunteering is a big part of the company and trust and customer success are one of out most important values. We're not just saying it. We're actually practicing it too. In addition, for such a large company, we're moving lightning fast, we 3 major releases a year. This dictates a fairly fast pace for planning, developing and releasing.
I was asked that question when I interviewed candidates for an open position and I had a hard time answering the question. There are the typical large company issues such as many groups to... coordinate when working on something, a bit of politics and bureaucracy and a lot of processes.
Advice to Management
Keep up the great work!

-Great workspace. Our Salt Lake City office is for R&D, so it's mostly engineers across different teams. The huge commonality is the space. It's energetic, feels like a startup, open environment,... and located right in the heart of the city! -Operating culture is so unique! So many companies bring an engineer in just to sit them at a computer and make them responsible for a singular output - Mavenlink is all about the team and the people around you. It's a pairing environment and we've been able to strengthen each other because of this. It also means we can continue to learn and grow while we're keeping our code clean. -Great leadership! Our Director of Engineering in Utah is extremely down-to-earth. So friendly, always positive, and definitely an enabler. -Autonomy between our teams. We have 6-7 engineering teams across our product side. We each have the ability to change our scenery and join other teams or learn different disciplines. This is the perfect setting for engineers who don't want to be pigeon-holed.
-Some light growing pains are expected and are pretty minimal here. We're expanding the space to have more room for future growth. Being downtown is the energy we want, but it can be harder to access... for those who live further down south (or who make employment decisions based on office proximity versus culture). We feel startup-y. We're not a startup because we've been around since 2009 and have a proven product, but it's not an uptight or corporate culture. This is a huge pro for many, but for those who might think the startup feeling office and environment is a detractor, it could be seen as a con. We get snacks, less rigid management, games, lunches, and the best things that come with a startup-like environment, so I personally see it as only a positive!
Advice to Management
Please keep hiring based on culture! It's hard to define and requires everyone to be engaged in finding the right fit, but as long as culture and collaboration are top-of-mind, the culture will... remain throughout the company scaling. Mavenlink is breaking the mold here so just keep it up!
