Featured Review

Current Employee - Director, Product Management

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

Pros

- Product guides the direction. This may sound like a given but most last tech companies, Engineering leads drive and PM support. - Benefits are great and help me find a good work/life balance -... Going from a great company to Salesforce, working for a company that cares is so important to me. I get that so many times over here.

Cons

- In San Francisco. Not really a con, but I live in South Bay. Commute is long. Luckily they are WFH friendly.

Advice to Management

Keep up the perks, benefits, and comp. All of those really make me proud to brag to friends, family, former colleagues. Keep me a happy worker.
