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

Pros

I work among the smartest and most talented people in the world, AND I get to sell one of the most incredible, most innovative technologies in the world.

The offices are incredible, the benefits are amazing, the perks are enjoyable and our CEO is admired across the world.

Cons

The company is growing so fast that its hard to keep up with the new hires and also be available to answer questions to help onboard newbies.

My job is to sell. Period. BUT, every week there is something new I have to do (Take a survey, Attend a Training, Get Certified on a new technology, Update my V2MOM, Update my performance review, attend a product session, attend a partner session, etc. Its a bit overwhelming at times.

Advice to Management

Dont become Oracle 2.0. Dont bring politics or social issues inside the company that could potentially drive wedges or create division.

    I have been working at Salesforce full-time

    Pros

    Top Level Management, Benefits, Product, Philanthropy

    Cons

    Middle Management, Changing culture, Hierarchies

    Advice to Management

    Salesforce used to be a flat organization where hierarchies didn't exist. We worked hard and got things done. The Individual contributor mattered and all of this made this company great. The massive growth has created several hierarchies and bureaucracy. It would be fantastic for management to preserve/bring back the agile culture that made Salesforce great as it transitions from a small to big company.
