      Amazing Culture

      Pros

      A fast growing, innovative company. Full of smart, intelligent, caring people. Really lives the core values of "Trust, Customer Success, Innovation and Equality" in a way that I have never seen in any other company that I have worked for. I love the 1+1+1 philanthropy and way every employee embraces this. From the CEO down people liv the values, publicly express those values and passionately care for the customers success. It is a fun, exciting and vibrant place to work. You get swept along with the raw energy of working here. Senior managers walk the talk and this is learning culture, You work hard and play hard and have a lot of fun on the way. There are not many companies in the world who have a weekly all hands call that thousands tune in to, the CEO and leadership team attend, and nearly always has a major Hollywood, business or musical star as part of the event!

      Cons

      At 20 years old and growing fast, you can see some growing pains. Lack of "big company" structure sometimes causes internal strife. Talking can overcome this, but it may require some more disciplined approaches in the future.

      Pros

      I have been with salesforce for 6 months and it has been a great experience. Structured onboarding process, excellent benefits and respect for work life balance. Everyone's is treated equally and fairly and opinions are respected and listened to.

      Cons

      It's a very big company and its quite difficult to get to know everyone. There's a surge of information coming from all over the place so its important to time manage

      Pros

      Salesforce is a company who’s CEO was a salesperson...sales is for sure treated well! They do a great job being a fantasist company overall, there is certainly different opinions based on what team you’re on. I was there for 5 years, had different managers. Most were great, some were still good. Everyone here is smart and cares about what they do!

      Cons

      It’s becoming a big company. Anything you’d expect from a really large company. Promotion processes have become more rigid. Territories have shrunk a bit. But with this comes more opportunity.
