    Pros

    Good salaries. The company is growth rapidly. Employees are very friendly and intelligent. Office view is very nice! Management appreciate your work.

    Cons

    1. Office is a bit crowded.
    2. The company is not fully developed, so you might need to figure out stuff by yourself.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Be more sharp and organized on each position.
    2. Find a relative feasible way to solve the limited space problem in office.

    I have been working at Salesforce.com

    Pros

    Great products, e.g., Chatter - and more on the way.
    Opportunity Open Market.
    1:1:1.
    Great location.
    Improving focus on people and job sat.
    Never ending technological innovation.
    We eat our own dog food daily.
    Focus on the customer.
    Most people are in SF (but that's changing rapidly).

    Cons

    Recruiting, finance, and other organizational infrastructure is not keeping pace with growth.
    Tension between freedom and control of product development (freedom is winning).
    Non-traditional scrum organization makes it difficult to level practices across Technology.
    People don't get the depth (and increasing breadth) of the technology because of the name salesforce.com.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more in non-sales, non-tech people and departments to support growth.
    Take aggressive steps to decentralize products.
    Embrace the global workforce.
    Be more public about our technological accomplishments so public perception matches reality.
