    Pros

    Good compensation, excellent location, and working from home is an option. As far as enterprise software goes, the company is in an exciting position.

    Cons

    Lots of bad low-level managers. The company is bad for young people; prepare to get jerked around if you're wanting to grow and try new things. Far too much office politics, even in R&D. QA is a dead-end career path for technically-minded people, but management is in denial of this fact.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to individual career development. There's a reason your turnover is so high (hint: it's because all you're providing is a pay check).

    Growing too fast to maintain the quality in the field organization.

    Pros

    Salesforce.com has some very good technology. They also seem to have some good dynamic leadership at the top. They have built a very strong following.

    Cons

    I had nearly 100% turnover on my team in the first year. Some people just walked out without another job. A couple just lasted a few months. There are some very arrogant, demanding people working in the field sales organization. Territories are shrinking quickly. Backstabbing is the norm for many people. Obviously there are some very good people there, but the bad apples spoil the entire bunch.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take action on the troubles in the field and don't ignore the bad apples. I know for a fact that VPs knew about some really bad managers, but just ignored them, letting many good people walk out the door.
