    I have been working at Salesforce full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    * I've worked in a few companies at this point and I can honestly say I love this company.
    * Great culture with an inclusive nature to it.
    * Management are great and look for your insight as much as possible.
    * You work hard. We have A LOT of products that need to be sold and so the learning curve is steep. In this vein its obvious why its generally known that having Salesforce on your CV basically guarantees you a good job in sales in pretty much any company of your choosing should you ever decide to leave.

    Cons

    * As mentioned the learning curve is steep. It can become overwhelming at times in terms of learning the products but also trying to perfect your sales technique. The support structures are there but if you are previously unexperienced in tech sales (like i was) there will be days when you feel a lot of pressure.

    I have been working at Salesforce full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There is no denying Salesforce is an incredible company to work for.
    The benefits are fantastic.
    The structure is in place to make sure you are happy day to day and in a good place to do your job successfully.
    The culture is strong.
    The work is meaningful.
    The offices are very impressive.
    Room for development and career growth.

    Cons

    It can be a very competitive environment, not necessarily in a positive way.
    Naturally, as the company grows it becomes less able to hold onto the small-startup culture that it once had.
    If you fit in, you fit in well but if not it can be a lonely place to be.
    Work-life balance is very much a work-in-progress.

    I worked at Salesforce full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great salary, fun people, good benefits, great for learning sales fundamentals

    Cons

    - Marc Benioff (CEO) hasn’t been to the EMEA HQ in Dublin in over 5 years. Take from this what you will.

    - lack of transparency with internal interviews, no ACTUAL reason for not being promoted. The provide feedback through the medium on nonsensical corporate jargon that ultimately yields no explanation as to what you did wrong or how to improve going forward.

    - Dublin office location is in an industrial estate near the Dublin mountains

    Advice to Management

    Micro management doesn’t lead to productivity.

    I have been working at Salesforce full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Salesforce has a lot of great people. it's simply a great place to work because of these people. There is quite a lot of autonomy in the Dublin office which is great and there's certainly a good work-life balance.

    Cons

    In Salesforce, it can be quite difficult navigating the direction that you would like to take in your career. In my experience, it's been mostly a minefield when it comes to career advice. It all depends on your manager.

    Advice to Management

    In my experience and based off of other colleague's experiences, many of the managers are already far stretched with their own day to day workload to deal with these type of career-related questions.
