Current Employee - Senior Manager in San Francisco, CA
Current Employee - Senior Manager in San Francisco, CA

Approves of CEO

I have been working at Salesforce full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Challenging work. Great people. Some good benefits. Ability to live/work in San Francisco. Company continues to have a strong reputation.

Cons

Extreme growing pains have lead to many overworked/under-valued employees and under-resourced departments. Burn-out is prevalent throughout the company. Although comp packages were historically competitive, they now lag competitively.

Advice to Management

Take time to better evaluate hiring and retention strategies to avoid an even greater loss of institutional knowledge than already suffered and recognize attracting and retaining talent involves both competitive comp and well-resourced teams. Investing in infrastructure, especially with ballooning growth, cannot continue to be put off.

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Ability to touch companies big and small. Marc's customer centric view can be inspiring to offer different points of view and make a true difference. Foundation's 1:1:1 model allowing me to give back to my community. Many many smart people to work with and create greater solutions than any one of us could come up with. Strong support for ongoing development and education.

    Cons

    Need to balance traditional approaches with innovation in development and decision making internal processes. Focus on agile teams may cause greater efficiencies to be lost.

    Advice to Management

    Actively engage especially new employees in what they found to be more effective in their past organization while calling out what they are celebrating in the salesforce culture to emphasize and maintain the positive while always reaching for the broader opportunities.

    Don't work through hierarchies as much, encourage deeper skip levels, as much feedback detail maybe getting lost in translation.
