I have been working at Salesforce full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Fast past environment but with extreme focus on team work and team building. Friendly environment that supports work/life balance. Like the focus on charity and communities. Good benefits packages as well.

Cons

Resource constraints require you to focus on short-term urgent projects to complete versus being able to focus on longer term strategies and success.

Advice to Management

Recruiting process is lengthy and often times responses are not timely. Not replacing departed employees timely, really make it difficult to get jobs done.

    Pros

    A lot of perks, from outings, to snack rooms, good location, nice office, and the people were great to work with. Also the product is the best in the industry, so in many cases it sells itself. It's a work hard, play hard environment.

    Cons

    It's getting very political with the change of the guard to a more Oracle centric management team. Territories are thinly sliced and watered down unless you're in the good graces of your manager or the most senior person on your team, and if you're stuck with a bad one someone has to leave or get promoted for you to get a bigger slice. Work life balance is so/so...each manager determines if you can work from home with no real "program". Base salaries are below average in the industry.

    Pros

    Really intelligent people. Good product. Great CEO. Face paced environment.

    Cons

    No work-life balance. Your manager will make or break your experience here. At one point a manager I reported to implemented an attendance policy which docked people for being sick. Sound ridiculous? Probably, but it's completely true. Salesforce is a SALES company first and a TECH company second. Goals often seem more important than people.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your frontline employee feedback. Have some empathy and compassion for people working for you.
