    Pros

    Culture, people, snacks, well oiled machine.

    Cons

    Unachievable quotas: increase quotas each year and decrease territory sizes even when no one hits quotas. Do not pay enough.

    Advice to Management

    Decrease quotas

    I have been working at Salesforce full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Very collaborative culture, empowered to do what's right, big focus on making employees successful and to make the workplace enjoyable. Strong social agenda of give back

    Cons

    Like most Sales organisations, the relentless pressure associated with constantly growing at double digits

    Advice to Management

    Enrol new Senior Executives into the Salesforce Culture rather than giving free rein to manage based on their experience.

    Cons

    I can feel like you are behind the pace of the organisation and the hugely talented people within . You need to take time to get up to speed and you are given the time and encouragement.

    I have been working at Salesforce full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Very smart people. Super collaborative. Good pay and benefits. The company really tries hard to offer a strong social calendar and plenty of opportunities to participate in various groups, voluntary work, training, etc. Also quite buzzy atmosphere and great fun on the right day. Inspiring people and vision and a strong desire to try and do right by the customer. Also deliver amazing events globally.

    Cons

    Very sales focused and growth targets are very aggressive. Career opportunities are surprisingly limited and very talented people can get stuck in roles for years as the structure is so flat in marketing and the team is so lean that there’s often nowhere to go. Management is also very hit and miss. Some are great and others are incompetent. This inconsistency means that those under good managers do well and those... under bad managers get stuck. The company needs to invest more in training people to be leaders and coaches rather than just putting them in charge due to tenure. Workload can be extremely high and overwhelming so it takes a while to work out how to get by without burning out. Also tend to employ highly experienced people to do a lot of execution as headcount is so limited they need to hire people who can create a strategy and execute it. This leads to frustration among people who could be doing so much more but get stuck in the detail of delivery.

    Advice to Management

    Please invest in comprehensive management training and find a way to progress people so that they don’t get stuck in roles. People don’t want to leave but end up doing so because they literally don’t know how to advance their career despite being a high performer.

    I have been working at Salesforce full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Working at Salesforce has so many positives - they really do hire amazing people, the way the business is run is incredible considering the size, not much in the way of political BS, great technology that exposes you to so many businesses and quality experiences, and the perks and lifestyle is top notch. Overall it's impossible not to say this is a great working experience, even if it ends up being a valuable... chapter in a larger career.

    Cons

    The base salary is relatively poor although the ability to make commission can be massive. With that said, it comes down to the companies you're working with and there are plenty of very talented people at Salesforce doing poorly for this reason. The inverse applies as well - although the overall people standard is high there are some with mediocre talent and effort who stumble blindly into huge paydays.... Also, when you're in you're in – you tend to only view the world through the lens of Salesforce.
