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

Pros

-Still in rapid growth stage even in its 13th year
-Culture of embracing change and innovation
-1/1/1 give back to community model

Cons

-Too many layers of management
-Recent change in culture where teams do not want to take ownership or make deciscions (too much CYA)

Advice to Management

Slow hiring Associate Directors, Directors, Senior Directors, Associate VPs, VPs, SVPs and Executive *. We need worker bees to support the overhead!

Also, get rid of the population that is afraid to make decisions!

    People - Its all about collaboration and teamwork. Opportunities - You are in full control of your career and can move and grow as you desire.

    Cons

    Rapid growth can lead to some on-boarding frustrations. However, this is a very minor con.

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

    Pros

    Great people who are dedicated to their jobs. People join to make a difference.

    Cons

    Management team and human resources.The company is so unfocused that people do not know who or where the company is going. People join to make a difference only to find out that the company's 1:1:1 messaging is only marketing not reality.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your people. There is a reason 40% of your people leave in the first 2 years
