Pros

You'll get the chance to work with some very bright people and have a well-respected name on your resume.

Cons

Office politics here are killer. If you're great at backstabbing your colleagues this is the company for you. Little attention paid to strong performers. Instead, it's all about who can brown-nose the most. If you're good at this type of thing, salesforce will be great for you. However, if you're looking to be awarded for your achievements rather than your networking skills, look elsewhere.

Advice to Management

They have some very bright and experienced people working under them. But more attention needs to be paid to the way promotions and salaries are being awarded.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    A leader in the field and a company that is committed to making a difference in the world and in the industry. Passionate leadership. The employees are energetic and believe in the mission. The Foundation provides employees with a chance to give back to the community. The company cares for its employees with little things like free snacks and sodas and bigger things like creating nice workplaces in convenient locations. Customers love the technology and the company and it is always nice to work for a place that when you mention it in conversation people say that they have had good experiences with your company.

    Cons

    If it is possible, the emphasis is a bit too much on the customer. There needs to also be a focus on creating internal processes and procedures that will support the desired growth

    Pros

    This is a great company to work for in a very exciting time in the industry. It is a leader in its field of business which makes for an exciting opportunity before you even get to the front door. There is a healthily vibrant atmosphere in the company, a word-hard/play-hard attitude and a decent respect for work-life balance. The company is growing fast and there are a ton of opportunities to raise your career profile, move departments and discover more about your skills and abilities in the workplace.

    Cons

    This is a hard-working atmosphere, but undeniably rewarding. You will get back what you put in (and more) at salesforce.com.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing this company to be the best in the industry - great work!
