Benefits are fine and the product is good, however competitiors up to Mid Market are winning market share based on UI/UX, implementation costs and speed. Commission structure was better last year.
Gaslighting is rife - Territories are unfair making quota an impossibility for a lot of reps. Regular to see reps with multiple territories which is an obvious advantage. Many managers unqualified but are there to fit a quota. WAY TOO MANY MANAGEMENT LEVELS - this causes bottlenecks, double jobbing and endless chatter messages from multiple managers. Internal communications are a disaster - they don't seem to know what they are doing as they change constantly It is normal to manage people out and try hire someone else in to the same dead territory who no doubt go through the same fate. Discrepancy between core values that do exist across the company just not in the sales department. Family friendly depending on your line manager (I've been lucky, many haven't).4Salesforce Response2w
Thank you for sharing your experience. We will be escalating this review to sales leadership to address your concerns, as the environment you have described is counter to our culture. Discrimination based on gender and family status -- or in any form -- is not tolerated at Salesforce. Everyone deserves to feel safe and be treated equally regardless of their family situation, and we expect leaders to uphold our core value of Equality. If this is not the case, as you are describing, an investigation is needed so this can be resolved. We ask that you please reach out to Employee Relations via the Concierge Article "Connect With Employee Relations" or if you prefer to remain anonymous, our third-party provider Ethicspoint at salesforce.ethicspoint.com to share more details and allow us to investigate the matter directly. Thank you again for your feedback.

Salesforce do an amazing job at hiring great talent and people. The people make the culture and is the reason I like the company.
I think it's easier to list them: - Massive lay offs without any thought for the implcations (removing experts and not replacing them) - Focus on Signature and diluting the value of Premier. Major churn over the horizon, as soon as customers realise how much they are spending for a service they arent using, - The mood at Salesforce is very glum, no trust in management and jobs don't feel safe. - Especially in success the promotion route is very limited, managers never move on, and you are fighting with everyone else for a promo.4Salesforce Response4w
Thank you for taking time to leave your feedback. We understand that any workforce reduction is difficult, and we empathize with the impact it has had. These decisions aren't taken lightly, and were driven by the need to adapt to changing business circumstances. We've listened (and will continue to do so) to feedback from employees requesting more transparency into our promotion process, and have taken active steps to update the process to provide more visibility and insight into what goes into promotions. We know we have opportunities for improvement and will continue to stay focused on evolving our processes. While the organization has certainly undergone many changes, what remains the same is our commitment to our core values and our employees. Thank you again for sharing your experience.

Product suite is good and quite complete. Benefits are generous, above average.
Culture is toxic in Sales. Pressure is always expected, but even high performers are not treated properly.2

Some good benefits and good software that you can be proud selling.
- Extreme hierarchy. - Most managers treat you just like a number and they have no business being people managers. - Low-key bullying going on in most teams. - Lack of progression opportunities. - High migration of talent out of the business. - Favouritism- I have watched some people being set up for success and some people set up to fail from the beginning. - Boys club.9Salesforce Response2w

Great company with great products. Expanding into AI products which will help Sales in future
2022 & 2023 have been touch years for the tech sector and Salesforce no different. Constant requirement to perform but this is to be expected in a Sales role. Economies like UK are slowing down and this makes it difficult.

No, at the moment! It is a great place with lots to learn!
