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.

    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
