    Pros

    Tons of growth opportunities, interesting work and great benefits.

    Cons

    It’s a large organisation with many groups - it can be challenging to navigate at times, but what large company isn’t?

    Pros

    Team of intelligent marketers, producing incredible work. People genuinely want to help the team as a whole to succeed. Company as a whole, provides great benefits.

    Cons

    Some people within marketing do not get the opportunities, support, resourcing and overall fair treatment in comparison with others. There is a clear divide in the way that particular individuals are treated as favourites i.e. getting preferred treatment, more resourcing, more recognition, while others get nothing. Culture within the team is extremely toxic. People grandstand and backstab to get ahead of others. Louder individuals with bias from the marketing leadership team succeed, others do not.

    I have been working at Salesforce full-time for 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.

    Great benefits, 1/1/1 model with time off for volunteering, infinite chances to learn. My Senior Management was open minded, confident, and would always listen!

    Cons

    Easy to get lost in such a fast moving company, have to pick your area and dive in!

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

    Pros

    great benefits, friendly warm environment(mostly), innovative and fast paced, great career opportunities

    Cons

    Sales can be extremely unfair environment. If your Manager likes you or you are simply lucky (30% of people) you can land a great territory or a double territory and do very well. Not just financially but you will feel valued by the business and respected. If you are one of the 70% that are not in this category - you will find it extremely hard to do well.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits including generous parental leaves, health insurance, wellness reimbursement etc. Office facilities are great, with free food and drinks and nice environment.

    Cons

    Very stressful work with an unmanageable amount of workload. The work itself is not intellectually challenging but more emotionally tiring. Work is often not distributed fairly. If you are a top performer you will end up with a lot more work with no appreciation. Manager doesn't necessarily see how much everyone is doing even it is reported in the system or doesn't have a solution on how to balance it. Poor performers can get their ways around by just talking and can still get promoted.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits: health & wellness expenses, volunteer days, free snacks

    Cons

    If you like Kool-Aid, have a knack for never questioning things, and don't care much for integrity, this is the place for you! Worst office politics I've experienced - conflicting goals across teams created tension between managers which trickled down to staff. Goal posts were constantly changing and never reaching a resolve. One particular manager was notoriously difficult to work with and had a reputation for bullying, playing favouritism, and making most people feel uncomfortable by employing a management style of intimidation. Despite multiple HR violations against him for his aggressive behaviour, nothing was ever done to rectify it. You're not encouraged to work as a team, but instead, encouraged to develop ways of getting ahead of others through sometimes unethical means. Middle management will overlook any unethical, throwing-under-the-bus behaviours if it means you help them hit their numbers and make them look good. Nurtures a cutthroat environment of arrogance and greed. The company spends far too much energy talking itself up to its employees (#dreamjob) and customers without following through with the goods.
