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

    Pros

    Inspiring CEO and leaders. World’s leading organisation that continuously drives innovation, equality and corporate philatrophy. Smart, driven people. Great company values. Great Training and Development opportunities with dedicated time assigned for employees training during onboarding time.

    Cons

    Can’t think of anything. If I have to list one, it might be the demanding training but if you love challenges and learning, then it would be a Pro!

    Advice to Management

    We love being part of this amazing organising! Keep inspiring us everyday!

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

    Pros

    Well respected brand. Attracts great talent. 1-1-1 model is more than just lip service. Interesting and challenging work. Benefits are some of the best I’ve ever received as an employee.

    Cons

    Pains and politics from growing fast. Flat management structure makes it challenging to understand career path in the company. Products and platforms and their nomenclature are constantly changing which can be a challenge to keep up and stay aligned and then communicate effectively to the customer sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure that we don’t lose too much of the secret sauce in the growth to being a $20b company.

    I worked at Salesforce full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Strong leadership (Marc Benioff). There never any doubt who is running the company and what the company's vision, goals, strategy etc are. Exciting, ever changing work environment.

    Cons

    Salesforce is a very US (San Francisco) centric company. There is limited autonomy to make decisions in the country branches.

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

    Pros

    I was working as a contractor at Salesforce for several years and was very impressed with the company culture. They have an incredible sense of inclusion and really value their employees. The work/ life balance is incredible and there is a lot of management encouragement to spend time with the family.

    Cons

    I can't think of any cons... it's likely the most rewarding company that I've worked with.

    Advice to Management

    The Core values are amazing and it's so great to work with my team at Salesforce!

    I worked at Salesforce full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There are some pockets of Salesforce that are safe for minorities, and some managers who promote based on merit (and not skin tone).

    Cons

    Minorities are less likely to get acknowledged and promoted even though they exceeded expectations, receive high ratings, and outperform their peers. Minorities are not likely to receive credit for their work. Minorities are more likely to be the first ones to lose their roles in a reorganization.

    Advice to Management

    Look in the mirror. Senior leadership is made up of mostly white men. Tony Prophet has no leverage in the company and is no more than what the leadership team tried to portray: to check the equality box. When you let a group of white men take over an organization, track to see who gets promoted (hint: white men), who are the new hires (hint: white people), and who gets terminated because their roles are no longer...

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

    Pros

    Benefits, unlimited PTO, the name of the company, Media and market stronghold, Ruling the cityscapes

    Cons

    Company is imploding. The 3-4% annual merit raises aren’t good enough. Existing employee salaries are sub-par. No RSUs or stocks given to employees anymore. Incentivization by pay is a distant dream. Management and upper management take the meat of the money - typical of any company getting avaricious. Heavy attrition in critical functions is chipping away at all levels. Politics and power grab is the main game and not...

    I worked at Salesforce full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Corporate messages to encourage inclusion and diversity - There is a Chief Equality Officer - Company supports programs to help kids in under-represented areas

    Cons

    - Chief Equality Officer has a small team and is not empowered - The few minorities that are in senior positions either are individual contributors have small teams -- and small budgets - Vast majority of minorities are found in lower level roles -- even ones that have been in the company for 10+ years and are very qualified / talented

    Advice to Management

    Request and review employee data. The data is there and it does not lie: - Percent of minority employees in the company? - Percent of minority employees in leadership roles? - Percent of minority employees in lower level roles? - Senior managers that have let go the HIGHEST number of minorities employees? Senior managers that have hired the LOWEST number of minorities employees? (Are they the same?) The numbers...
