    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.

    There is some inertia working for a company with 55000 people. Amount of information can be overwhelming. Can be hard to find the right channel to talk to.

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

    Pros

    Good company culture, benefits, office perks, younger crowd

    Cons

    All about the numbers without little looking at the causes. If you're unfortunate enough to have a bad territory that year, good luck trying to get out of it. Everyone knows it's about timing and territory but management will never admit that and will blame you for your lack of sales
