    I have been working at Salesforce full-time for less 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

    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.

    Pros

    Outstanding Product and ability to anticipate future correctly as they always seem to make the correct choices around Roadmap. Salesforce prides itself on #Ohana which means family. It is core value/belief of company and makes it an incredible company to work for; Unless you are in Sales

    Cons

    3 things have changed for me as having been with company for long time and I consider them all Cons 1. Salesforce prides itself on #ohana which is family. Salesforce #ohana is vibrabnt and alive and incredible. Unless you are in Sales in which case its non existent. It is run old school the Oracle way. 2. Customers suffer the...

    I worked at Salesforce for less than a year

    Pros

    Everything that you read on here: Free snacks, great insurance, great ESPP, paid overtime (which is a must if you want to achieve your OTE), great career opportunities if you survive, etc. You also actually feel like management care for you. I had a huge commission issued where they underpaid me by 75%, and had to fight for it for a few months. Ultimately, upper management came through, which is amazing.

    Cons

    Very toxic culture. The issue with Salesforce is that there are so many people lined up for working there, that they simply do not care about the long-term well-being of their employees. Salesforce is a machine, you will be put in it, use you for everything your worth, and they will spit you out and move on to the next one. Most people...

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

    Pros

    Salesforce has by far been the most incredible company I have ever had the privilege of working for. The company goes above and beyond to leave a positive impact on it's employees, and communities. The #SalesforceOhana is prevalent every day I come in to the office- from management, my team, every employee I come into contact with, and the Volunteer Opportunities every employee participate in. Salesforce stays true to...

    Long(er) interview process but worth the wait, and the work!

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

    Pros

    The culture inside the company is like a family. Everyone is willing to help those who need help on any issue or challenge. It's a non discriminatory environment open to people from all countries, religions, sex and color. The company really cares about what people can do instead of how they look or where they come from. Salesforce encourages career development and progression, investing a lot on helping employees to...

    Cons

    For some roles, the performance bonus is based on billed time over the year, so "bench" time as consultant does not help much to reach 100% performance even if the effective work was good for the client.

    I have been working at Salesforce full-time for 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
