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

Pros

TL; DR -- I've recently learned that this means "too long, don't read", however I invite you to read on... OMG, what an amazing place to work! Ok, beyond the title promotion while I was interviewing, the un-asked-for-raise while interviewing and after 4 months on-board, the unexpected RSU issuance, and the sizable bonus: This is one amazing place to work. Execs, across the board, are open & interested in your ideas - from any level. The level of transparency is mind-blowing: from Marc sharing his yearly objectives on company-wide TV (where *all* employees can view & participate), to every single employee's annual goals posted for all to see -- it's phenomenal to walk into a meeting with someone where you know what's important to them, and be able to share how your common goals can be accelerated by working together. Another amazing attribute: the 1-1-1 model, which is totally pervasive across the company -- every major exec all-hand starts with what the team has given back to the community. It's a beautiful, heartwarming, positive, and futuristic approach on how to impact the world. All opinions & ideas are welcomed.

Cons

If you are not open to fast-paced, dynamic change, and unexpected change of direction: need not apply. Very, very fast-moving; need to digest & decide quickly, and always think of the customer first -- if this is not your view, then please keep looking.

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you are doing! I could not, after 8 employers, and consulting with 50+ companies, literally think of another company better run than Salesforce.

    Pros

    I joined Salesforce a week ago, and I can safely say I plan to stay here forever as it feels like coming home. It's like a dream come true

    Pros

    Materialistic: Good salary and benefits (they reimburse gym,spa,sports and/or dance class fees per month up to 5K not just for yourself but cover your family members too! Reimburse 3.5L per year of tuition in case you want to pursue continued education outside! LOTS of holidays! Free amazing unlimited food and drinks 24X7X365. Also did I mention they provide an iPhone and MacBook to EVERY employee along with unlimited 4G internet connection?! The office has a mindfulness room to practice meditation, space for nursing mothers, board games, Pingpong tables, air hockey tables among other things

    Culture: Colleagues are warm and friendly. I have barely finished a week here and I already have friends and plans made for a movie, team lunch and weekend! Everyone is helpful, non judgemental and open. As I work in a global team with my colleagues across the world, the diversity is mind blowing. One of my colleagues is an actor in movies, the other one has travelled to 29 countries, my super boss was a part of a very famous American TV show in her young days!! There is lot of stress on wellness and being fit with bike month, running challenges as well as on giving back to the society with fun team volunteering events right from Day1. As a leading technology company, the systems are integrated with a SSO and user friendly

    Career and Development: They stress on developing careers right from Day1. There are many trainings conducted, articles on their blogs and trails(online learning). Also the networking opportunities are immense. It's great to work with the smartest people with diverse backgrounds and learn from each other.

    Also they have a fun themed office space with cute mascots printed on walls, furniture and just about everywhere! The events I have been told are larger than life and the office space is exactly the same across the globe to make employees feel good! Very thoughtful I must say

    Cons

    Honestly, I just can't think of anything

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing the good work! You all are amazing and role models for our generation
