    I have been working at Salesforce full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I am grateful to be apart of Salesforce and my team. The interview process was intense but a lot of fun and I am very much looking forward to bootcamp. Everyone has been fantastic and truly wants you to succeed. I was a little skeptical of the “Ohana” culture prior to my first day but it is for real. Yes, it can be stressful and even overwhelming at times but that is to be expected anywhere.

    Cons

    There are no cons that I have seen as of yet.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing

    Pros

    Truly walk the charity talk; Very positive environment; Great to be a part of a wildly growing firm; Pay well; Customer events are first class; Great tech that never fails; Broad platform for interesting customer use cases.

    Cons

    Ever seen that episode of Black Mirror with Bryce Dallas Howard where she constantly chases positive social ratings in order to keep her place in society? That's whats its like at SF. Faking constant positivity can be draining. Its genuine with most folks but when you have 'real talk' many folks don't take it well.
    I was there for 3 Fiscal Years and had my territory reduced by 50% and my quota rise by 50% every year. The 3rd time my patch became too small to hit the high quota. Sales mgmt would rather have 10 reps make 60% than 6 reps make 100%. Work-Life balance is tough too. Pressure for growth is massive on RVPs so it rolls down hill. Maintaining 25% growth has an impact on the front lines.
