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

    Pros

    Solution Engineers get acknowledged for being a crucial part of the closure of millions of dollars a year. Work life balance is really respectful for people with all personal lives. We can work from home as much or as little as we'd like. But most of all, our leadership entrusts us emphatically with the future of the business, so I feel 100% supported in my actions. When we speak up, our voice is heard, listened to and actioned. I've never been part of such a large organisation and I was shocked to see how each individual feels a sense of belonging. The benefits are incomparable; best parental leave in the country, $150/month for wellness, best private health insurance in the country, $4,500 a year for education and many other perks.

    Cons

    Fast paced environment could take awhile to get used to, but SE Managers are great at swiftly shielding you from being burnt out.

    Advice to Management

    We are constantly motivated by the leadership in Solution Engineering, so keep up the good work. One suggestion would be to run SPIFFs for SEs to allow us to go above and beyond for a reward.

    Regional Sales Director Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Melbourne
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Salesforce (Melbourne) in October 2018.

    Interview

    Professional, comprehensive. Conversations with experienced people, not just a string of questions. Combination of google handout and face to face interviews, both formal and informal over coffee. Consistently though they were conversation based, not interrogation based.

    Interview Questions

    • Ranged widely from experience to situational. Alot focused on cultural fit. Something clearly very vital to Salesforce' success.   1 Answer
