    I have been working at Salesforce full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Salesforce has a great culture and is very warm and welcoming to new joiners. In addition the salary and benefits are the best, I have ever come across.

    Cons

    Salesforce is constantly recognized as one of best employers in the world and I can't think of anything that needs to be improved.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing what you are doing.

    Pros

    Amazing culture Extremely bright individuals internally and on the other side of the phone Vast and expansive product suite

    Cons

    The learning program is TrailHead and essentially "learn by yourself" methodology which can be tricky because the Sales Playbook is extensive.

    Pros

    Amazing learning opportunities/ chances to accelerate your career. They hire top talent and every single employee will go out of their way to help others.

    Cons

    The first couple of months is very focused on ramping up to the demands of the job - luckily, you will always be paired with a mentor who will help you with this change.

    Pros

    Everyone wants to win. A company filled with top talent who are dedicated to furthering their careers within Salesforce, and thus producing incredible results. Even though it's competitive, everyone supports each other in their journey.

    Cons

    Can be challenging understanding org structure with such a large and complex sales machine.

    I have been working at Salesforce full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Great product and a company that has an uncanny ability to sell the dream.

    Cons

    For a company that prides itself on Customer Success, they do the exact opposite. Managers encourage AEs to bleed customers for every penny that they have and to be extremely agressive while doing so. Also, management is not present at all, unless it's the last of the month or quarter end . Conservatively, I would say that Small business Sales managers are in the office less than 15% of the time and take the approach...

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach and put customers first. Also, since Montreal is a hub, there needs to be more visibility into what goes on in the Montreal office from management in Toronto. It is simply unacceptable that management is never in the office at a company like SFDC.
