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

Pros

- good working environment
- great collaboration
- good career opportunities
- amazing reference

Cons

- too much focus on Sales
- too much delay on payroll related issues

Advice to Management

On first sight you'd think team work and collaboration is a big part of Salesforce.com and everyone contributes to the greater good and the growth of the company but if you look closer you see huge differences in how different departments are treated. For example Account Executives not only get better paid they also get free lunches, can win paid travels in contests and so forth. In my opinion there should be more and equally as rewarding incentives for other departments who help the growth of the company in their way.

    I worked at Salesforce full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    When things are running well, the money is good and you feel like a king.
    Benefits and employee support are amazing

    Cons

    Your territory dictates your success to a large degree and you can't do anything about it if the territory is weak.
    Lots of pressure to make your number every month

    Advice to Management

    Be honest that all territories are not created equally. A good rep in a bad patch can still get put on a performance plan despite a strong track record of success.

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

    Pros

    Salesforce.com has some very good technology. They also seem to have some good dynamic leadership at the top. They have built a very strong following.

    Cons

    I had nearly 100% turnover on my team in the first year. Some people just walked out without another job. A couple just lasted a few months. There are some very arrogant, demanding people working in the field sales organization. Territories are shrinking quickly. Backstabbing is the norm for many people. Obviously there are some very good people there, but the bad apples spoil the entire bunch.

    Advice to Management

    Take action on the troubles in the field and don't ignore the bad apples. I know for a fact that VPs knew about some really bad managers, but just ignored them, letting many good people walk out the door.
