You want fast? This place goes fast. It's "fun chaos" at an Enterprise with the soul of a Startup.

Indeed Featured review

Priorities change fast here. Your first 3 months will be trying to make sense of it and feeling frustrated, until it eventually clicks that "the rules are made up and the points don't matter" (like Whose Line). Salesforce is approaching 40,000 employees but in many ways has retained that "start-uppy" feel of pivoting on a dime to build and release products sourced right from customer needs. It gives you whiplash early on, and everyone is constantly asked to do 200% of whatever they could possibly do (which is why the "80-20 rule" matters so much for work-life balance and mental health here). Eventually you learn to kind of shrug, say "Whee!", and go with it. Then it's fun! Learn to prioritize and advocate! Don't say "Yes" to everything, because the job will take everything from you it can if you let it, when we're going this fast. One of the coolest things about working here (a bug or a feature depending on you), is how openly the company wears its socially progressive stance on its sleeve. Philanthropy and pursuit of equality permeates the entire place's DNA, which infuses a sense of "purpose" into what could otherwise be cold or boring enterprise cloud software. Other recruiters have attempted to poach me multiple times and often told me how "impossible" it is to get people to leave Salesforce. The high compensation and sense of purpose is a huge part of why. Go to Dreamforce and see for yourself! Customers are RABID for this platform, they love it. It feels nice every time you randomly meet someone in the world that uses Salesforce, and they 100% always say -

Your experience largely depends on the team you support. Culture is going downhill, changes with activist investors have caused all unique aspects of Salesforce (wfh, work life balance, ohana) to go away in favor of a more Amazon-like approach.

Overall, I did like my job and team at Salesforce. I was somewhat challenged and enjoyed the work we did. I also received great benefits.

What is the best part of working at the company?Benefits include time off, pay, and potential stock options.What is the most stressful part about working at the company?Leadership and constant change. Leadership is not always very experienced and they are not transparent. The biggest issue, you never know if you will have a job or if your job, role, and or manager will change. There is always a reorg.What is the work environment and culture like at the company?I don't feel there is really a culture but the environment is hostile and all over the place. You never know who you can escalate to or if you can.What is a typical day like for you at the company?Up and down. Leadership does not provide much direction. But, if you are a driver, you will spend most of your time-fighting fires.

great place to work

Salesforce is truly an amazing place to work, boasting a remarkable company culture that sets it apart. From day one, I was welcomed into a supportive and inclusive environment that values innovation, collaboration, and personal growth. The dedication to employee well-being, professional development opportunities, and a strong sense of purpose make Salesforce a standout employer. The company's commitment to making a positive impact on the world not only inspires its workforce but also fosters a sense of fulfillment that is truly unparalleled.

Challenging and rewarding

Solid company. Great benefits. Challenging work as an program architect. Do be aware that the organizational structure changes frequently which can be disruptive and stressful.

Good culture, still needs to "grow up"

Great people and good culture, but you can still tell the company started selling to mid-market (and smaller). Enterprise sales is different, but we're getting there.

Great company to work for if you are aligned to the right group

- Like any other large organization, you need to be in the right group and leadership - Flexibility to explore other groups and competencies that you may be interested in- Company pivots as per market demand which actually brings more good than bad
