    I worked at Salesforce full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Very good benefits, competitive salary, good co-workers, good priority on giving back.

    Cons

    Management out of touch, insane corporate culture, non-existent career development, major layoffs.

    Advice to Management

    Stop crushing satellite offices and let them be autonomous.

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

    Pros

    - Fantastic Work Life Balance - Great Compensation, especially relative to WLB (You can get paid more elsewhere, but most of those places will more unreasonable asks of you in return) - Consistently positive culture - Great support for Remote/Telecommuting employees

    Cons

    - Large amounts of reorgs can cause some whiplash and lack of cohesive work - Some legacy products - Some engineering teams have it way worse than others (in terms of WLB, On Call Schedule, Client Complaints etc)

    Pros

    Excellent work-life balance Compensation Excellent work culture

    Cons

    Salesforce operates using proprietary frameworks that are only used within salesforce. There is quite a bit of learning curve and take a while to master. This can slow down your growth prospects since you would have to spend a couple years simply to understand the ins and outs of the environment while at the same time competing with the engineers who have been around for way longer and have what is called the 'tribal...

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

    Pros

    - Trust - Extremely transparent to such an extent that I can see the goal settings of each and every employee of Salesforce. Feedbacks are given at the right time and finally, everyone strives to do better for the team rather than the individual. Innovation - Team thinks of at-least 8 years in advance when making the roadmap. Every engineer needs to have a certification in AI/ML by 2019. This is one amazing...

    Cons

    We are going through crazy growth in all locations and especially, Hyderabad, where will be growing from 1100 to about 3000 by 2020. Need to focus on infrastructure needs like seating etc. However, "Growth" is a nice problem to solve!

    Advice to Management

    Nothing.

    Pros

    I've really enjoyed working at SalesForce. I think Marc Benioff is a wonderful leader and love the contributions he's made at the UCSF. His philanthropic efforts to support the children's hospital and the rising rates of homelessness far surpass those of other prominent business leaders in the area. Thank you Glassdoor for having the ability to leave truly anonymous feedback on any company regardless of race, religion,...

    Cons

    Cons- there are always cons at any job... long hours, hard work... but why sign up for a job if you're not willing to put in the hours?

    I have been working at Salesforce full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The company truly embodies the tenets it stands for - Trust, Customer Success, Equality, Growth. There is a feeling of Ohana (family) within the entire community. Technically skilled yet humble co-workers, transparent management and win-win culture makes Salesforce stand apart from other companies. It is truly my second home.

    Cons

    The fast paced environment and obsession with quality maybe unsettling initially. But once you get used to it, you will echo the same sentiments.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work and retain the same culture however big the company might get.

    I have been working at Salesforce full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Definitely the best job I've ever had, the work is constantly changing, endless opportunities to learn something interesting everyday. The culture at the company is very strong and they emphasize it constantly. There's very few companies that have as good of benefits as Salesforce healthcare, well being, volunteer time. There's so many programs it seems impossible to take advantage of them all (check em out at getsalesforcebenefits...

    Cons

    At the SLC office specifically we went through a double acquirement recently, so we've definitely been going through a transition period. Sometimes not being at HQ (San Francisco) you feel like your office is overlooked. SLC office is a pretty old building. These are pretty small complaints though and are getting better all the time.

    Advice to Management

    Just keep doing what you're doing, I feel like feedback gets acted on constantly and quickly.
