Pros

Benefits are good now that Salesforce purchased them. Young atmosphere and they want to be innovative.

Cons

All sales opportunities are fed from Salesforce--no direct sourcing, therefore all delivery opportunities are downstream from Salesforce. The result is a you are brought in to do the work that SFDC deems passable. Delivery is "old school" CRM type of mentality and from what I see despite multiple means of capture is rarely hitting the sweet-spot on work effort specs and is off on most opportunities. Transparency may have once existed but now is missing. In general the "talk" is good but the "walk" falls short. The transition to SFDC is hitting these guys hard. They are scrambling to step up and figure out who and what they are now. Lack of clarity, lack of understanding--difficulty in grasping SFDC paradigm makes for an odd environment. Meanwhile SFDC is pushing the largest deals to close, and individual goals reflect that push. A very odd combination. If you are a sales guy look elsewhere. If you are a delivery guy the excitement and cool opportunities will not be here. May have been a great company to work for but look for a mass exodus now.

Advice to Management

... go by the SFDC comments. Come in at the highest pay rate you can and highest title because chances are high that you are not going anywhere.
