I worked at Salesforce full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Sales culture, hipsters, great product, happy customers, company uses the app in all aspects of the business, work on on your smartphone, ipad, or PC and be productive

Cons

Frequent territory and account shifts, execs assume all prospects "get" the cloud, too many new products and features in beta or pilot

Advice to Management

Focus on improving the core product and integrating all of the products together. Spending too much time trying to port Facebook features for the enterprise.

    I worked at Salesforce full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Solid pay & benefits
    Great philanthropy opportunities
    Good work/life balance (at least on my team)
    Probably on of the best office locations in SF
    Potential to learn a lot

    Cons

    Moves very slowly (only people who think 3 releases/year is fast come from even more enterprisey backgrounds)
    Lots of extra added process in the last year, making life harder for devs
    Cult worship of his highness gets old incredibly fast, especially when...
    ...the company hasn't actually made money in a while (using non BS accounting). This is completely inexcusable for a company with $3B+/year in revenue. If they can't generate real profits at that scale, they likely never will
    Most importantly, the vast majority of the R&D org doesn't really care about either their jobs or technology in general. Thats not really a problem per say (their prerogative to do so), but it wasn't really what I was looking for. I didn't interact with anyone at SFDC that I would call technically incompent, but there are far too many indifferent people and not nearly enough excellent people.

    I worked at Salesforce full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great corporate culture, amazing coworkers, great company managers, incredible products and really good compensation and benefit packages.

    Cons

    Other than the fact that they don't see virtual work with keen eyes (weird for a cloud company), I loved this work.

    Advice to Management

    Go Virtual!
