Pros

Salesforce is a decidedly non-political environment where people work together to solve problems regardless of rank. The company defines the Software as a Service space and continues to innovate with the recent introductions of Platform as a Service, Salesforce Ideas and Google App integration to name just a few. There are lots of exciting things to work on here. Salesforce is also committed to philanthropy and not only encourages, but helps facilitate the donation of up to 1% of each of its employee's time to the causes they care about.

Cons

The company is committed to regularly delivering products that are of high quality and delivered on time. That means that the pace and volume of work is significant. This is not a great place to work if you are just looking to put in your time. That said, the company accommodates flexible schedules and really does care about work-life balance.

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work. Senior management has thus far been able to deliver on the big promises it makes to its employees, its customers and Wall Street. As long as that continues to be true, I'm happy.

    Pros

    Salesforce.com does some of the best web-based marketing from the public website, in the industry. The product just plain works and works well. The speed at which we are able to innovate and add new features is astounding. We are now more then, just a CRM company and ready to go to the next level and join the handful of software companies that exceed $1B a year in revenue

    Cons

    The pace of change and new features added into the products causes a heavy burden to stay current, but then that is what attracts a lot of people to this company, the pace of change and making change in the industry. We have grown quickly and some "infrastructure" pieces are a little behind, but we are getting there

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your people in the field who are in front of the customers.
