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 - more...
Salesforce is an amazing opportunity to learn about the world of information technology in the cloud. There is an incredible steep learning curve and bombardment of information however the longer you stay the more you start to grasp significance and advantages of each vertical. Salesforce is one of the best companies to experience and they have upward mobility for anyone willing to work for it.
