Pros

Working for salesforce.com means you are participating the build-out of the next wave of computing. The product is startling in its capability, quality, technology and elegance. The culture is young, dynamic, can-do and constantly on the move - very innovative and always looking for the next place in the market to be. It's energizing. The location of the offices, in downtown San Francisco, make it a great place to work (contrast with the usual Silicon Valley bunker-like low-rise in an industrial park). I had highly flexible working arrangements (work from home, flexible hours) but I know that is not available to everybody.

Cons

A very young, aggressive, smart and energized workforce has its downside: intense politics. If you are not in the right place or plugged in with the right crowd, it's hard to get ahead. Socializing after work is important, and if you are not into that or can't because of a long commute, then you can't network. You may just end up left on the sidelines.

Advice to Management

Keep on doing what you are doing - your stock price reflects your success.

    Pros

    The top reasons to work at salesforce.com are the people and the environment you work in. It is a very young and outgoing culture internally and it promotes a great camaraderie internally and outside of the company.

    Cons

    As the company has begun to grow into a large Enterprise company there has been less of a focus on employee growth and more of a focus on company success. Internal promotion has become political and long-winded.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more time ensuring your top performers are happy internally or the company will continue to lose strong assets to more alluring startups.
