    Pros

    They hold true to their stated values - Trust, Customer Success, Growth, Innovation, Giving Bank, Equality for All, Wellbeing and Fun!!

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Salesforce full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    VTO time off
    Great benefits
    3 weeks vacation
    Flexibility
    Challenging work

    Cons

    Can feel like constant fire drills
    Easy to feel burnt out
    Huge company means finding the right person to speak to can be challenging

    Advice to Management

    Don't burn out your great employees. VTO and vacation benefits don't matter if you aren't truly able to disconnect or if you just come back to a huge backlog.
