Pros

Aggressive growth, smart co-workers and top-notch technologies makes Salesforce.com a world in itself. In it's ideal downtown San Francisco location, everything is a step away.

Cons

Lots of smart people increase competition for a limited number of open jobs; a lot of outside hiring versus internal promotion.

Advice to Management

Secure internal growth to prevent an exodus of employees that helped build Salesforce.com into the brand and place it is today.

    Pros

    It is very satisfying working with so many bright colleagues because you are surrounded by mentors and you are continuously learning. The salesforce products are also fantastic.

    Cons

    The company moves at such a very high velocity, it is hard to keep up, but when you see the distance you make from competitors its worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work doing thorough product integration of the companies you acquire. This is worth the wait because it reduces complexity for everyone; salesforce and the customer.

    Pros

    Salesforce.com is THE training ground for everything Sales. They are very good and pushing you to develop your professional skill set as well as getting you trained on a very honed selling system. The app you use everyday is what you sell as well so it's very easy to position it.

    Cons

    All the success has led to a lot of account executives in the various business segments so territories are small. It can be difficult to hit your quota numbers if you do not have a blue chip territory. Those typically go to the manager's favorites... so if you don't get along with your manager the possibility of hitting your quota drops. If you work hard though you can typically succeed there.

    Advice to Management

    Management is great at almost everything there. I don't know if I would offer a lot of advice to change what they do. They work very hard and make the best of a highly competitive job.
