Honored to be recognized for the third year in a row!
Congratulations to our own CEO, Marc Benioff!
When you walk the halls of Salesforce, you instantly feel something special. That something is Ohana. When our founders started Salesforce, they were as intentional about the company culture they wanted to create as they were about the products they wanted to build and how they would go to market. They wanted to create a different kind of company. One centered around the Hawaiian concept of Ohana, which means family. And our Ohana includes not just our employees, but our customers, partners and communities. Today, Ohana is at the center of everything we do at Salesforce.
So what does Ohana look like in practice?
Authenticity - It's our employees knowing they can be their authentic selves and do the best work of their careers.
Togetherness - It's our customers and partners trusting that we are here to help them succeed.
Sharing - It's our communities believing as we succeed, we will share our success with them.
We bring our Ohana spirit to life inside and outside our company by living our values of Trust, Growth, Innovation, Equality, Customer Success, Transparency, Giving Back, Wellbeing, and Fun.
These are the values that unite us, inspire us and make us uniquely Salesforce.
We have offices all over the world. We take pride in our global footprint and the opportunities that gives to members of the #SalesforceOhana.
We have 59 sites in the U.S. alone! These are the cities that we call home:
And, a significant percentage of our population works remotely! We do everything we can to make Salesforce a caring environment for our employees — no matter where people work. For instance, Ohana@Home is a grassroots community of remote employees who started connecting over Chatter (our internal network) to share best practices for working remotely and engaging with our culture from their home offices. Our leaders took notice of the initiative and are helping to drive change through a variety of new programs and initiatives focused on our remote employees.
Futureforce is Salesforce’s global university recruiting program dedicated to attracting, retaining and cultivating next generation talent. Our interns and new graduates work on real projects that affect how our business runs, giving them the opportunity to make a tangible impact on the future of our company.
With offices all over the world, FutureForce recruits have the chance to collaborate and connect with fellow employees on a global scale. We offer job shadowing, mentorship programs, talent development courses, and much more.
Salesforce has been named one of the Top 100 Best Places to Work for Millennials by Fortune and one of the Best Places to Work For Recent Grads by Symplicity, making this the perfect place to launch a career. And, many FutureForce alum do join the team full-time: 80% of our eligible interns become full-time employees.
I have been working at Salesforce full-time (Less than a year)
The 1-1-1 Model here (google it) and a tangible benefit that results of it is 7 full days of VTO (volunteer time off) to be used responsibly at your discretion. Matching gifts to a non-profit of your choice.
- Benefits here overall are incredible
- ESPP is attractive
- Time off is generous
- comp package works in your favor- i.e. hard work does in fact = revenue.
- equipment is all up-to-date and excellent (iPhone as work phone, and MacBook as laptop)
- Training that consists of bootcamp in San Francisco, and further training at a local hub. Ongoing trailheads and updates also keep you on your toes.
- Fast-paced environment
- Great culture

- Continuous acquisitions of companies continues to strengthen our products and offerings.
- Snacks, events, and happy hours
- Flexibility and autonomy given to consult with your clients
- Networking opportunities here are endless
- You can feel "left-behind" here at times, so it's crucial to stay organized to keep up with the pace, especially early on.
- Work-life balance (self-induced): it's easy to become attached to your work and your accounts, and it trickle over into your personal life after hours, or on weekends.
- Difficult quota to hit, but that's for a reason. if this were easy I suppose they would let anyone in.
Can't think of anything else. It's hard to find things wrong with Salesforce, in fact this section took me a lot longer to provide the bullet points above then the pros section.
Advice to Management
Keep up the good work! Can't wait to see what's next, and hope to continue growing my career here.
I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Salesforce.
Very lengthy process, with a lot of different Calls, Meetings, and final panel presentation. The in-person panel was very good, learned even more about Salesforce from a product perspective. The conversations with the various team members was very good, was able to learn much about the team the Ohana culture at Salesforce.com Overall despite being somewhat lengthy, was a very good interview process. HR did a great job of communication throughout the whole process.
