    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.

    Keep doing what you are doing!

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

    Pros

    I've worked for 2 excellent global corporate organisations before coming to Salesforce, but the induction into Salesforce is in a different league to anything else I've seen - it's simply incredible to experience how well it's organised and run. Every member of the Salesforce Ohana (family) is friendly and welcoming, and the underlying feeling that the company cares for its employees is ever present. The corporate philanthropy programme (the 1-1-1 model) is another key reason why I joined Salesforce, and is every bit as good as I hoped. I've been here for just over 6 months now, and every single day something will happen that makes me consciously remember how lucky I am to be working for such an amazing company. I set extremely high standards for my employer and it's not always easy to impress me, but I can't recommend Salesforce highly enough.

    Cons

    Not one Con... literally wouldn't change a thing.

    I have been working at Salesforce full-time

    Pros

    From the first day induction to sitting my last meeting in Cape Town it has been an exciting and amazing in equal measure. The people are all smart and engaging, the culture is positive and thoughtful and and the product is global leading and world class so the the customers are second to none.

    Cons

    It’s busy m, hectic with intel and it’s target driven which can be a stressful balancing act at times

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be more 121 time built in weekly as it’s is so busy you can lose a month without reviewing
