    Former Employee - Sales in Dallas, TX (US)

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

    Pros

    -Good technology
    -Good products
    -Great marketing and recognition in the market
    -CEO has a good vision

    Cons

    -Very high turnover.
    -Little to no support from management
    -No internal mentoring or coaching.
    -Sales team operates very tactically by having Monthly sales targets. This creates some very bad behaviors and makes it nearly impossible to chase larger, strategic deals
    -Very busy and zero work/life balance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a close look at the managers you have promoted. There is some serious deadwood that offers zero value to employees/opportunities and is completely uninvolved in territories and deals. In a word, they manage up.

    Former Employee - Senior Account Executive in Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)

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

    Pros

    The location is prettybeasy to access, and the soft perks such as free vending etc are nice to have. Pension is excellect and they make a good contribution. Salesforce look after their staff with excellent health insurance and travel insurance. Carear wise they develop their staff skills, however this doesn't relate to a development path.

    Cons

    It has become more important to be seen to do something than actually do it and becoming increasingly political. Salesforce isnt known to promote from within. Respected staff are overlooked for promotion in favour of more recent political plants about 10% of the sales team earn near their ote, the rest make do on their basic.
    All of the above are resulting in poor morale and unrealistic expectations being set for new employees.
    If considering a role in sales ensure you can survive on basic as you won't hit toe unless you are very lucky.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make targets realistic. Promote from within, beware becoming oracle.
