    I have been working at Salesforce full-time for 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...

    I have been working at Salesforce full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The stuff around putting the customer first is all true. The company gears everything towards making customers successful with the best technology, the best people and the best ideas (because technology is just technology if it is not doing the right thing). The benefits, facilities and opportunities are sector leading

    Cons

    Like any business it can hire some poor managers. It takes people in from rival businesses and whereas they often bring new and strong ideas on how Salesforce can develop they can also bring an old fashioned IT industry attitude of negative pressure and blame.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your people the way the company treats you. Listen to some of those Steve Jobs quotes.

    I have been working at Salesforce full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Amazing benefits Really hard-working and friendly, helpful employees - they hire on personality and ethics. Fantastic values, we really make a difference here and you have very happy clients. New business comes easily as the brand is so well revered. Product caters for all types of business from one man bands to google, amazon and Governments

    Cons

    Nothing is perfect but the tiny tweeks required are happening in real time to try and make the life here as enjoyable and productive as possible. Salesforce don't actually have the cleanest use of the Salesforce app! More app rigour could help with account team changeovers as there is a loss of info when teams swap. The sales commission on very big deals is heavily reduced

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. Don't penalise sales people for big deals.

    Pros

    Very appealing culture, good people & great products.

    Cons

    It's a feast or famine sales environment. A few high value transactions are hiding the reality. There are a large proportion of the Sales team unable to deliver again their target.

    Pros

    Where do I start from? There are so many positives it is hard to list them all here. I just think do lots of small things really well. Salesforce pays well and therefore they attract high-quality people, but not just that, they trust their employees and that's reflected in the autonomy and flexibility everyone is given which is why they remain at Salesforce. The organisation constantly keeps making the right moves,...

    Pros

    Salesforce is a fast paced innovative company where you will learn and develop your skills and knowledge more then any other company I have come across. Their is a huge support network to help you achieve your goals and endless resources for anything you may need. One of the greatest perks of the job is the volunteering you can do for local charities. I have been lucky enough to work some charities and get to meet...

    I have been working at Salesforce full-time

    Pros

    The 1-1-1 model is amazing. The company is proud to be volunteering and it is not only appreciated if you do, but also encouraged. SF promotes equality (hired last Month a chief equality manager), got the best reference cases from customers themselves and is very good for the healthcare of the employees. It is a company that cares for her employees and her customers plus got very innovative solutions. The onboarding...

    Cons

    Equality: There is a good focus on equality which is good as it is needed. In my eyes there is a lack of female managers or managers that understand how to use the strengths of having woman in the sales team. Overall, all managers have a checkbox they need to complete by hiring or interviewing woman, I think in the end they will be better in also give specific trainings to managers on how to actually manage a woman better....

    Pros

    Salesforce tries really hard to maintain the culture of startup while growing and expanding its business to meet market demand. Lots of perks, especially in US and for office based employees. If you can find the time, the VTO model can be rewarding for all concerned. Broad customer appeal, ongoing innovation. Some employees absolutely love the place and the culture - almost cult like belief which can be both...

    Cons

    Too many processes, not communicated consistently across the business - result most people are very busy - but not very productive! Looking to shoe horn acquired businesses into what are already broken core processes - consequence of which is frustration all round. Too much focus on trailhead and mandatory virtual learning, information overload and simply not enough hours in the day to get the job done. Compared...

    Advice to Management

    Don't loose focus on the customer! Simplify the customer journey, help them get what they need and want - not the stuff they don't! Simplify life for your employees, for many employees it's just too hard to get stuff done to serve our customers. Everything's not great - take a look around, people are burning out due to inefficiencies. Prepare for attrition -> and then expect further drops in productivity,...
