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

    Pros

    The 1-1-1 Model here (google it) and a tangible benefit that results of it is 7 full days of VTO (volunteer time off) to be used responsibly at your discretion. Matching gifts to a non-profit of your choice.

    - Benefits here overall are incredible
    - ESPP is attractive
    - Time off is generous
    - comp package works in your favor- i.e. hard work does in fact = revenue.
    - equipment is all up-to-date and excellent (iPhone as work phone, and MacBook as laptop)
    - Training that consists of bootcamp in San Francisco, and further training at a local hub. Ongoing trailheads and updates also keep you on your toes.
    - Fast-paced environment
    - Great culture
    - Talented professionals
    - Collaborative environment across different segments
    - Brand recognition
    - Smooth employee processes in the background (payroll, time logged, benefit tracking, incentive tracking, employee profile, etc).
    - Continuous acquisitions of companies continues to strengthen our products and offerings.
    - Snacks, events, and happy hours
    - Flexibility and autonomy given to consult with your clients
    - Networking opportunities here are endless

    Cons

    - You can feel "left-behind" here at times, so it's crucial to stay organized to keep up with the pace, especially early on.
    - Work-life balance (self-induced): it's easy to become attached to your work and your accounts, and it trickle over into your personal life after hours, or on weekends.
    - Difficult quota to hit, but that's for a reason. if this were easy I suppose they would let anyone in.

    Can't think of anything else. It's hard to find things wrong with Salesforce, in fact this section took me a lot longer to provide the bullet points above then the pros section.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! Can't wait to see what's next, and hope to continue growing my career here.

    I have been working at Salesforce full-time

    Pros

    - Amazing culture from transparency to giving back to developing people
    - I was given ample time to ramp up on the knowledge I need to do my job
    - Fast-paced, always changing dynamic product and go to market approach
    - Work / life integration is truly a value between time to volunteer to ability to spend time with friends / family around work

    Cons

    - As most people are Remote, need to be comfortable with that setup and the lack of interactions. It is offset by plenty of video conferences
    - Really not a negative, but there are so many great people career progression will take time and not be overnight
