    Pros

    Regular opportunities to progress due to rapid growth, amazing Ohana culture, great office space in Salesforce Tower, opportunity to work with lots of talented people, great technologies, culture of giving back through Salesforce.org, plenty of opportunities to have fun at work.

    Cons

    Everyone is ambitious so path to lineal promotion can be blocked. Will the feel good factor disappear if growth stagnates?

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing open door policy, keep up efforts towards equality for all.

    I have been working at Salesforce full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Superior products
    Great brand
    Free eats and drinks
    Good Benefits

    Cons

    Salary increases and promotions are restricted to the 'boys club'.
    The Ohana culture is well touted internally and externally, but the reality is that the focus is purely on growth and sales with little concern for employees
    ZERO work/life balance, I've now heard that we should be considering work/life integration instead!
    Sales people count has grown exponentially, however the sales support functions have not, therefore there is a very limited pool of support resources.
    Expect 12-16 hour days if in sales.
    Be ready to drink from a fire hose when it comes to information overload
    No real structure
    Becoming a 'revolving door' company with account executives

    Advice to Management

    Put into practice what we tell the market and value your sales employees instead of treating us as commodities
    Be less condescending, you do not have a monopoly on intelligence!
    Local management will determine the culture locally, regardless of the overall company culture, be cognizant of this

    Global company poses frequent challenges - even small changes can be difficult if there is a need to do them on a global scale

    Advice to Management

    Review how Salesforce offices uses Salesforce tech to actually operate the buildings they are located in - our 'wow' factor should also be given to customers visiting and experiencing first hand how we are using Salesforce tech oursleves.
