Current Employee - Account Executive, General Commercial Market

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

Pros

great culture, embarrassment of resources for sales

Cons

Recruiters use overtime to justify lower base salaries, but it’s never guaranteed. Stop taking away or limiting our OT

Current Employee - Senior Account Manager

I have been working at Workday full-time

Pros

Culture is not a tick in the box but the owners actually believe the company has no reason to exist with the core values of the company. The technology is extremely strong. The market is the actual... core business of our customers, hence you are very relevant to these customers.

Cons

The operational processes are a bit lagging the company growth, but that is being worked on.

Advice to Management

Never lose your focus on people first..please :)
