    I worked at Salesforce full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    > Good pay - if you have the experience you can negotiate hard for your salary and come out on top if you stick to your guns.

    > Bonus structure (like nowhere I've ever worked before) you're pretty much guaranteed your 10% annual bonus once you don't mess up or end up on a performance improvement plan. Easy like Sunday morning.

    > Nice periphery benefits - health insurance, pension contribution, phone, education allowance if you wish to return to job related study

    > A few snacks in the office

    Cons

    > Marketing Cloud - the product is a disaster. They've simply gone on a shopping spree as a company purchasing Radian6, Buddy Media, Social.com and now Exact Target but still move at a snails pace to make any sort of integration or connection between the platforms. Even having one logon for all systems would be a major step forward!

    > Company is not 'born social' and fails miserably at creating any sort of fun, energetic or dynamic culture / environment that give Social companies the edge at attracting or retaining talent. The culture is beyond stale with literally no collaboration between colleagues/teams and zero effort from management to improve this.

    > Customers are never happy, but I don't blame them (perhaps with the exception of Social.com). They struggle with the products and are often mis-sold solutions, or rather sold solutions based on a vision of a product that actually doesn't exist. There is only so much 'we are working on that for the future' a customer can hear before they up and leave to a competitor that actually delivers.

    > If you're someone who likes to work completely alone then this is your gig, but if you appreciate engaging with others and team work, heck, if you even appreciate people lifting their heads to say hello in the morning, then this is not the place to be for you.

    Advice to Management

    For Marketing Cloud - you've got the cash, you've got the brand reputation from your Salesforce association, there is great potential here but you need to focus on creating a decent culture for employees. The churn rate among staff speaks for itself.

    IMO you're hiring the wrong profile of candidates. Consultants from Deloitte, Accenture are sure smart, but they do not have a notion how to be social, or sell social.

    Get some dev resources behind product integration. Move faster to add new features as the competition are killing it.

    Keep the benefits going - major attraction for most.

    Pros

    Great salary, fun team, amazing culture, cutting edge technology and all the food you can eat!

    Cons

    Very fast paced, working for a US company has all the set backs with the time difference, alot of pressure on sales team.
