competitive and cultivating environment

If you can't network and not a people person it might not be for you
you're going to need to take your work home with you
Unless you're going into Sales, it's difficult to get a full time position right now

    Pros

    Fast-paced company where you have the opportunity to learn new things all the time. Great benefits package and great people to work with.

    Satellite office doesn't allow for much advancement. You need to relocate to grow and advance within the company.

    "Most innovative company in the world, dominant market position, awesome products, successful customers"

    I have been working at Salesforce full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great compensation, lots of mobility win the company, great coaches among sales leadership. Market leading products and relentless pace of innovation that addresses problems customers didn't even know they had. Holiday parties are amazing with performers like Cyndi Lauper and the bare naked ladies. CEO just gave out 500 tickets to employees for game 2 of the SF Giants in the World Series. 5 weeks of vacation, paid paternity leave, time off for foundation work.

    Cons

    Can be a grind, success depends on territory (but that is the life of sales, not unique to salesforce). Moving into management can take a while. Resources like sales overlay teams for complementary products, sales engineering, are scarce or not competent and your succes can depend on them.

    Advice to Management

    Please train the acquired companies teams (radian 6, jigsaw) like you train us and hire more sales engineers.
