Approves of CEO

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

Pros

- Good comp plan
- Amazing product
- They market themselves extremely well
- Their 1/1/1 model helps people in need and promotes volunteer work by employees

Cons

- Company does little to promote work/life balance
- Some (not all) managers will suck you dry until you got no blood left - and then you are out
- Upper management only cares about results and do not listen to front-line employees' concerns

Advice to Management

Start caring. Some of their best employees have already left - and the trend continues, since management does not care about giving them what they need to remain successful.
Money is a good incentive, but when it becomes only a carrot to people who were successful in the past, realize there is something wrong and at least attempt to identify the root of the problem.

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

    Pros

    Comp was good. Innovative products.

    Cons

    SFDC is struggling to figure out how to be a big company.
    Has hard-nosed, win at all costs Oracle-type culture. You need to decide if you're into that.
    Sales mgmt has no problem berating entire teams in conference calls.
    Mgmt within the Platform team is unfocused and not very seasoned.
    Company turns a blind eye to hyper aggressive field sales people who run over their fellow employees.

    Advice to Management

    To Marc - take a hard look at your Platform mgmt leadership. Is *she* (hint hint) really the type of person you want to lead this team?? Lots of people have left due to her incompetence. She's not a leader, although AF does put a lot of energy into managing up.
