I have been working at Salesforce full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

- Working with some of the best brains in the industry

Cons

- Cronyism seeping in. Growth is tied to how much you suck up to your management
- Disagreements while encouraged on the surface, are dealt with serious repercussions covertly
- Work-life balance is eroding thanks to inept managers
- Top-down directives to teams is demoralizing

Advice to Management

Trust your engineers to do the right thing.
