The people make working at Salesforce fun and rewarding

  • Comp & Benefits
  • Culture & Values
Current Employee - Senior Member of Technical Staff  in  San Francisco, CA (US)
Current Employee - Senior Member of Technical Staff in San Francisco, CA (US)

I have been working at Salesforce.com full-time

Pros

- Friendly, smart, energetic, easy-going, and young people
- A culture that respects work/life balance
- A culture that promotes individual initiative and voice
- One of the best locations in SF for views (of the bay and Bay Bridge), walking-distance food, and happy hour
- Right next to a BART station (Landmark building)
- Great compensation, perks, and benefits

Cons

- No free lunches/dinners, like in some companies. Not really a "con" for me but for some people it might be. I prefer the vast array of real restaurants/food in the area over cafeteria food, but some prefer quantity/price (free) over quality so I thought I'd mention it.

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

    Pros

    - People are nice in general. Management is helpful, sometimes pushy but it's fine.
    - Social company, happy hours, young crowd, great spirit.
    - Great offices and location, desks are huge, you get your own big space.
    - Company phone, they give you a free iphone5 32Go with a great plan (att or verizon).
    - Free unlimited beverages (great and healthy choice), cereals, snacks, fruits.
    - Lots of free extra: clothes, mug, etc.

    Cons

    - Proprietary technology. You have to learn everything from scratch and put your strong background aside. Black boxes, none standard technologies, you rely on the performances provided by the "cloud".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    nothing to say.
