    Pros

    Lovely company - very fast moving. I think it's really important to click with people on your team. Your experience at Salesforce really depends on your team and your manager.

    Cons

    A lot of politics. Management is not great about explaining decisions made on the business. Sometimes feel like all I do is work - it can definitely take over your life.

    I worked at Salesforce full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Amazing friendships can be formed. The overwhelming first impression is just how warm and friendly people are. Lots of opportunity to learn new things. Education fund can be used very widely. Learn from the inside how this company creates the positive brand to the outside world. Benefits are truly amazing. £300 a month to spend on wellness is excellent.

    Cons

    The pace. They seriously need to consider how they expect employees to keep going at the crazy pace. Stress and burnout at this company is concerning. Politics! Keeping 10-15 people aligned on your plan every time is exhausting. Not have the autonomy to work in the way you know you can is frustrating and due to the pace, you really only ever offer around 70%. Yet, the pace is mystifying knowing that there are so many people to do every little element of a job. Sometimes you are left wondering what you role actually is. I think some people make a career out of attending in-house "events". Old habits die hard and there are still (young) male sales managers that have high egos and do not treat people well - but they hit their numbers so all is forgiven. Never see head of HR at any events - yet people are so important?

    Advice to Management

    Remember you are human too and keep treating people like human beings. Career opportunities shouldn't rely on how many people "back" you. You don't expect that from external hires so why is that so important internally!?

    Pros

    The culture is great. There’s a collaborative nature to the work I do, meaning that 99% of the time the work we do is efficient and a great fit for the client

    Cons

    At the same time, the culture can be overwhelming and difficult to navigate.

    Pros

    The UK RVP, Zahid Jiwa hired me into the high performing UK Enterprise Corporate Sales (ECS) business in 2017 and he is an inspirational leader who leads a large team of sales professionals and sales leaders.

    The leadership team give the ECS team the confidence to thrive under high pressure and they create an inclusive and supportive culture which develops leaders with the team.

    The coaching provided is world class and the ECS business is recognised for nurturing and developing talent within Salesforce. The management team will always go above and beyond to support their team.

    Cons

    Keep doing what you are doing!

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

    Pros

    - really nice colleagues
    - very open minded company policy
    - as a graduate you have a special "brand" in the company and get exposure through that in a positive way
    - you get a lot of freedom of what projects you want to be involved in (can be good and bad)

    Cons

    - communication tends to be intransparent
    - lack of clear statements
    - salary as a graduate
    - some structure is sometimes missing as the graduate programme and company are still in the process of growing and scaling

    I have been working at Salesforce full-time

    Pros

    Starting at Salesforce as a graduate this September. Worked with Salesforce software as a developer during my internship. Very good and high paying opportunities.

    Cons

    The pay for a success graduate (as a developer and in general) is way below what is expected in central London.

    Advice to Management

    If you don't want to lose talent to competition (Investment banks, Tech companies etc..) in Central London, pay competitively. Minimum for a Software Engineer/ Developer/ Analyst should be £40000 + bonus.
