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

    Pros

    Great benefits, maybe one of the best companies in the world. Fantastic products and a lot of innovation. Stock is a rocket ship. With the right accounts and a good manager it’s potentially a great place to work.

    Cons

    Support teams are tiny in comparison to the sales team size, absolutely mad. If you’re new you’re 90% certain to get a terrible patch. Middle management is weak - usually people that have survived long enough. Senior management is a revolving door like football managers. Quality of SE varies wildly. Sales training is poor to non existent. Go there with a well developed sales tool kit from a BMC style company. Salesforce employees can be cultish, and it’s infuriating. Have increasingly lowered the barriers for hiring.

    Lots of politics and a sense of empire building at the senior management level

    I have been working at Salesforce full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Company Doing Well - Good Products - Always Innovating

    Cons

    - We do not live by the rules and values we portray to the world unfortunately - Constantly hiring new sales reps, with existing sales reps having fewer and fewer accounts. - The vast majority of sales reps do not reach their quota (Its good business that they don't). - Promotions only occur for those that have a friendly relationship with senior management, if you're not in the inner circle don't waste your time. - Quarterly driven business - Senior management will always have a say and at times take full control of your deal altogether (and that's because they trust you, imagine if they didn't).

    Thank you for your feedback, what you've described is not what we want to see at Salesforce, and is contrary to our core values. Have you reached out to your ESBP for a confidential conversation? If you'd rather, you can also report your concerns anonymously by contacting our third-party provider Ethicspoint at http://www.salesforce.ethicspoint.com/. Thank you for your help in making the workplace better for everyone.
