    Pros

    Tremendous energy from marketing organization.

    Cons

    - Beware of the smoke and mirrors. Lots of hype around the "#dreamjob", but they don't tell you the pie has been cut so many times that a very small percentage of people actually achieve their goals.
    - Land of haves and have-nots. Despite AE's at the same level sharing the same quota, there is no effort to balance the account sets. It's extremely important that you ask to see your account set and license footprint before accepting the job.
    - Salesforce grew up from the SMB so the Enterprise group is run like SMB with a very short-term mindset and a monthly cadence.
    - Much of the support of the organization comes at the last minute after the selling is done and the deal is in the final stages.

    Advice to Management

    - Goals and accounts sets should be aligned on a territory basis.
    - Please look to companies other than Oracle for at least some of the new management team.

    "What was once a great place to work is sinking fast"

    Star Star Star Star Star

    Pros

    Despite losing good people at a rapid pace, still surrounded by some of the smartest people I know.

    Cons

    Culture is disintegrating at a shocking pace.

    Focus on the customer is now all but absent.

    No concern left for work/life balance.

    Focus is now on reports, updates and stuff to make the department leaders look good. All at the expense of doing the work that matters.

    Advice to Management

    Put real leaders in place. Not just figureheads with marketing appeal.
