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

    Pros

    Please are great and super supportive. When you join the company, everyone is there for you, to help you learn and do the best you can. 6 months in, it's still the same.
    In addition, the culture of the company is great. Not only are you encouraged to support your colleagues but you're also encouraged to help the community. Volunteering is a big part of the company and trust and customer success are one of out most important values. We're not just saying it. We're actually practicing it too.
    In addition, for such a large company, we're moving lightning fast, we 3 major releases a year. This dictates a fairly fast pace for planning, developing and releasing.

    Cons

    I was asked that question when I interviewed candidates for an open position and I had a hard time answering the question.
    There are the typical large company issues such as many groups to coordinate when working on something, a bit of politics and bureaucracy and a lot of processes.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    Pros

    The culture is well ingrained. Some pockets where it's not lived out but overall very good.

    Growth means smaller territories and increasing numbers to please Wall Street. Still, customer is value and cared for.

    Pros

    Ethical company lead by honest people.
    Great products
    Excellent value proposition for clients
    Work life Balance
    Promotes - encourages giving back to local communities

    Cons

    None that I've experienced.
    Salesforce offers customers the ability to swap products. There is a chance you'll get assigned to an account with a currently large burndown. Aside from this, which is a none issue, it is a great place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. I absolutely love everything about working for Salesforce. The charter, the people & products are all stellar.
