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

    Pros

    Salesforce is a company that actually takes care of you. Forget your typical corporate mentality. The culture of the workplace is fun and supportive and the people around you are incredibly intelligent. They also offer great benefits.

    Cons

    There are no cons I've come across so far.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    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.

    Pros

    Great culture and benefits package - 1:1:1 model is truly amazing

    Cons

    Pros

    The culture at Salesforce is quite infectious. The company doesn't just talk the talk, they also walk that walk. Constantly striving fora safe, non-judgemental and fun working environment for everyone apart of the Ohana.

    Cons

    The fast pace can take time to adjust to.

    I have been working at Salesforce full-time

    Pros

    Amazing training and enablement, plus encouragement to follow your desired career path within the company

    Cons

    While Salesforce touts its 'Ohana', being in a company that size means that you do feel like a number sometimes rather than a person.

    Can be a very intense place to work. While they do promote work-life balance, the amount of work you have on your plate means that you're working long hours and weekends a lot of the time.

    Advice to Management

    Team building activities are really important to build culture and solidarity within the team

    I have been working at Salesforce full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    1:1:1 model - employees are encouraged to take time to give back, even being given 6 days per year to take for this.
    Competitive salary
    #ohana culture - you really feel like part of something, and the organisation truly cares about its staff
    Innovation - it's easy to feel proud to work for a company who is the pioneer for what they do.
    Career development - you can have an entire career within the organisation, lots of roles and flexibility to move around.

    Cons

    Rapid growth means constant change - some may struggle with this.
    Internal systems struggle somewhat to keep up with the growth and constant innovation - we should be drinking our own champagne.
    The larger we grow the more careful we have to be about preserving our unique culture - this needs to be managed top down and newly hired leaders need to be on board.

    Advice to Management

    The bigger we get, the harder we must work to preserve our culture.
