Current Employee - Account Executive in Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)
Current Employee - Account Executive in Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)
Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
Approves of CEO

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

Pros

- excellent products in the market
- Message to the market is very visionary, sometimes to visionary
- very transparent, you could easily see your revenue achievement & pipe and also your co-worker's = you can see if territories are unbalanced
- OTE salary is good
- low level of pressure in sales
- Managers OFTEN former salesforce top-sales & really understand how to do business, this doesn't mean they are idiots in people management (of course it depends on the manager)

Cons

- still poor HR-level (following former reviews)
- to keep grows revenue rate high almost all markets are over hired
- achieving almost impossible
- getting a job in salesforce depends who receives your CV, you have good people in low level jobs and people after university degree in higher level jobs, it all depends where your CV is routed to
- getting a promotion is very political, seems easier to get a job from outside the company instead an internal promotion

Advice to Management

Keep going but stop hiring manager from oracle ONLY.
