    I have been working at Salesforce full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Really one of the best companies I've ever worked for. From the outside, the whole 'Ohana' concept may seem a bit cheesy, but it really is lived & breathed throughout the business & is infectious. I've yet to meet anyone who isn't willing to help or offer up their time.

    Cons

    Honestly, nothing that comes to mind

    I worked at Salesforce full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Looks great on resume - Decent training

    Cons

    Do a quick search of Salesforce marketing spend compared to other big tech companies and you’ll see why working here is such highly touted. The company has shown its true colors during the covid pandemic. Impossible quotas as is with no quota relief during pandemic. BDRs are measured by how much Monopoly money they put into Salesforce and how buddy buddy they are with their AEs. The company says one thing to the press but treats its employees a completely different way. I have not felt any instance of “Ohana” since being here even though I was super excited to work for Salesforce. BDRs feel as if it’s them against the world at this company and have to deal with AE ego on a consistent basis.
