    I have been working at Salesforce full-time

    Pros

    I've had five different jobs since I finished undergrad (almost ten years ago) and Salesforce is by far the best work environment I've ever experienced. Colleagues are supportive and welcoming. Managers are transparent and direct. And the culture sets you up to succeed with clear expectations of performance and goals to achieve.

    Cons

    Information overload! The Salesforce product suite is extremely robust and it takes time to feel comfortable understanding the full extent by which it can help customers grow and innovate.

    I was pleasantly surprised to find out how much Salesforce invests in the training and well being of their employees. Definitely the #1 place on my list of places to work.

    Pros

    Salesforce offers a great opportunity to grow and be successful. They are very focused on the customers success, your success, and improving the committee. This means that you focus on setting up the customer for success. The offices have an amazing feel (if you are not a remote employee) and vibe that encourages collaboration among team members. My management team is focused on my success and spends as much time with me as I need. I have and will continue to recommend folks to work for Salesforce.

    Cons

    You work a lot! This is because of the drive to become a better sales person and to learn more about the solutions and the customers. This is not a typical 9 to 5 job. They hire some of the best and they expect the best.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the work! The trust and transparency is a breath of fresh air.
