I have been working at Salesforce full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

This company's stated values are lived and breathed most of the time in most parts of the company. Transparent trust, focus on making our customers successful, and ability to innovate continue to attract top talent in the industry.

Cons

We've ignored our weak side too long: poor capacity planning, rewarding a few managers who have a 'work 'em to death" strategy or focus on their own career to the detriment of the team, and a noticable loss of strong clear vision will become bigger problems as cloud computing matures.

Advice to Management

Stop trying to be the best enterprise and the best mid-size and the best small business cloud computing company--pick two. Likewise, as any theatre arts major knows, you have to pick two out of three when it comes to fast, cheap, good. We keep trying to do all three....

    I have been working at Salesforce full-time

    Pros

    The engineers at Salesforce have a lot of opportunities to learn about new technologies and take training to beef up their skill set. There are so many different teams in R&D that you should have no trouble finding a team that is working on a product that excites you. Almost all the managers I've gotten to know have been great and eager to help with your career development.

    Cons

    Salesforce is not a start-up anymore, so there are a lot of processes and red-tape to go through to get things done.
