"Great company"4 Jul 2022

Current Employee - Account Executive

I have been working at Salesforce full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

With incredible culture, great benefits and pay, there are always opportunities to learn and grow and further your career.

Cons

Can be hard to get your head around all of the products initially and it can take time for things to click. Growing into a 70,000+ employee company means it does get more bureaucratic over time.

Advice to Management

Ask leaders if the right metrics and targets are being set and measured, or are we striving to meet the goals you set without question.
