    I have been working at Salesforce full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Slick marketing videos and promo material
    Baltimore has complete green field for selling

    Cons

    Hiring managers will lie to fill head count
    None of the reference accounts are actually fully using the product
    Basically we are a CRM company for SMB so your every move is being watched
    Sadist Sales Managers who know very little about selling
    Scraping the bottom of the bucket- hiring cell phone and auto supply / car sales reps
    Only a matter of time before MS and Oracle catch up and surpass on Social
    Patriot Act
    Very IBM-ish

    Advice to Management

    Stay classy Baltimore
