    I have been working at Salesforce full-time


    -Huge emphasis on the importance of charitable giving and being environmentally sustainable (backed by 6 paid volunteer days per employee annually, $5000 annual employee match for charitable giving, frequent internal charitable events) -Prioritizes engaging employees by aligning personal career goals with each employee's duties and encouraging movement between functions and departments throughout the company -Incredibly intelligent workforce: Salesforce is able to use its strong brandname to hire only the top talent and as a result has an environment where you are constantly challenged and learning, which continuously develops your own skill set. (Less than 1% of applicants receive employment offers) -Strong community environment: Salesforce has been able to build a corporate family unlike any company I've been a part of before. People honestly care for each other and will go out of their way to look out for past and present employees. Salesforce focuses on working as a team rather than separate individuals which develops a sense of inclusion. -Incredible parties: Salesforce certainly caters to a more extroverted, lively and connected personality by having frequent social and networking events throughout the year -$100/mth employee fitness benefit and health benefits that are largely absorbed by the company. Free yoga classes and espresso bars are also offered in some offices -Offices are generally situated in the heart of cities rather than in suburbs


    -Headcount growing perhaps too quickly which could transform the community feel to a more corporate environment -Does not offer full meals (light snacks and beverages are provided) -Signals of a more corporate future ahead evidenced by a shift away from local vendors to their global competitors

    Advice to Management

    Although we're growing quickly, make sure Salesforce is able to retain it's small community feel rather than becoming a rigid corporation like many older tech companies

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Salesforce.


    I applied online and contacted the next day by recruiter for a phone screen. I was then scheduled to speak with the hiring manager over the phone the next week. After speaking with the hiring manager, I was scheduled for two more phone interviews with others on the team. The recruiter was great and professional. She was timely in her response to me. I enjoyed working with her. The hiring manager was alright as well. I couldn't really read his emotions though, but that could be because it was over the phone. My biggest gripe is with the two former interviewers. One was not even part of the team or profession, so I had no clue why she was interviewing me. She sounded arrogant and sounded frustrated when I couldn't answer her vague questions about my own profession. The second interviewer was even worse. He was part of the team but straight out admitted he was a bad interviewer. Boy, did that show through. He asked questions that did not make sense, so that did not help me in answering anything. Several days later I was contacted by the recruiter letting me know I did not get the job.
