I have been working at Salesforce as a contractor (Less than a year)
Ton of food available, Jill makes that place run and is always very kind.
If you're a contractor and you're looking to watch your diet, disregard the fact there is food here. Just about everything are comprised of empty calories and non-conducive to your good health. As it says in the title there is a culture of carrot dangling, conversions based not on quality but if you make the right friends. And the large pool of contractors are as cutthroat as you can get in an office environment, they'll snipe your cases out from under you to pad their numbers while management does nothing. Despite us being "employees" of Salesforce the inbound callers can verbally abuse to their heart's content with no worry or threat as management will ignore the lack of respect and professionalism while tripping over each other to please the abuser. Management CONSTANTLY sends out e-mails about events or perks to the entire GSD distribution group mentioning these great benefits, only to send one out usually within an hour saying "Oh btw, FTEs only...sorry!". They do this without fail as if they're taunting the contractors. In summary, cut-throat number driven environment with no support from management. I highly advise anyone but those early on in their career who want a "hip" bullet point on their resume to STAY AWAY.
Advice to Management
Stop treating your contractors like 2nd class citizens, take some care to understand that they don't have all these neat little benefits as you do and are living paycheck to paycheck. Don't create a environment that encourages ticket sniping and poor quality and maybe....defend your analysts from abusive colleagues.
