What Employees Say
I have been working at Salesforce full-time for more than 5 years
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.
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.
I worked at Revel Systems full-time for more than 3 years
Big improvements in the leadership team once the original CEO/CTO left. The company finally has a plan on how to succeed. WFH, friendly management team, no micro managing. Things can be a bit... crazy when onsite with a customer, but I always felt a sense of accomplishment when a project was completed. On the days I wasn't onsite, things were relaxed and there was time to catch up on outstanding issues. Overall, I really liked my day to day routine and never dreaded "going to work"
Took over 2 years to get any sort of raise. In fact, I made more my first year with the company than I did for the following two years once they did away with the project bonuses. After 4+ years,... my income was only about 3% higher than when I started. There was also very little room for advancement within the team.
Advice to Management
Pay your employees competitive salaries and offer performance based incentives.
