Current Employee - Vice President

I have been working at SAP full-time

Pros

Strong in technology And customer committed

Cons

Very top line driven - a sales organization

Current Employee - Enterprise Account Executive

I have been working at Salesforce full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Best front end system(s) of engagement in the business. The platform earns you time to speak with all executive lines of business about strategic direction and where you can support their success.... It's one of the biggest reasons that I've come back to the company. There's some great competition for enterprise sales with AWS and Google Cloud but I'd much rather speak to executive stakeholders rather than IT about Infrastructure. Lot's of meat on the bone for things to sell with recent acquisitions.

Cons

It's up to you to build healthy boundaries around work life balance when you are working at the fastest growing enterprise company in the world. Occasionally, you can get boxed in with certain... verticals (teams) not wanting you to venture outside of their linear career path. Emerging commercial business roles are subject to transactional sales and relationships but show me a company where that's not the case. Occasionally implementation partners are not adequately prepared to take on large deal implementations which can result in customer satisfaction issues. These can linger and be stressful but there are the right resources on the Salesforce end to make things right.

Advice to Management

Salesforce is subject to hiring top performing sales reps as managers. Occasionally I'd like to scream from the mountain top that the best sales people don't necessarily translate to the best... managers. Hire the best people and provide them with the autonomy and tools to do their job and get out of their way.

Job Postings

Salesforce has 5,183 more recently posted open jobs than SAP.
