What people are saying about Salesforce
5 days ago
Bit of background about me. I joined Salesforce straight out of college in Professional Services. Enjoyed it but realized there’s 0 work life balance. I moved to Presales in a different company. But the company was going through some tough times and Salesforce made me an offer to boomerang. I did that but now after experiencing a life outside Professional Services I am having a hard time adjusting back. What should I do? I do want to stay in Salesforce but it’s very hard to move internally.

Is it just me or are there really some aggressive people in the chats here, especially from Salesforce, unfortunately? I see people attacking other people‘s comments with: „beyond silly‘, ‚you are delusional‘, etc. Like any of us would know how things in other departments/orgs really are? And then we speak of the „top talent“.

Hi Folks, I got approached by Zendesk and looks like I am getting an offer for EBU AE. Anybody who can share with experiences, thoughts about the company after the acquisition. Culture, etc. Thinking of leaving Salesforce I will be getting a much bigger territory. Delighted with SF but they squeeze every single corner in the AE territories and toxicity is increased. Money at Zen also better I would appreciate any feedback since its an important and risky move after 5 successful years at Sf

The people are really the best part about working here. I've worked with employees all over the world and the common thread is that they are good, thankful, hardworking and decent people. Marc is an amazing person to follow. Dreamforce and All-Hands meetings that we all get to attend or stream live tend to hype everyone up and renew our spirits.
The perks are great but the pay for an entry level person is not great. It all depends on the department you join. If you are in an org that doesn't make money (like HR or Customer Support) you simply won't be making the kind of money that Sales and Marketing is making.

The people. You our surrounded by the brightest and most talented in Software. The product is good but not as good as it used to be. Acquisitions have been poorly thought out and integrated Pay is awesome if you get a good territory. About a 33% chance of having a good ‘patch’ People work very hard here and that is rewarding. Team selling at its best.
The activist investors have all but killed the culture Back to the office mandates have been shameful. I have two working moms in my team who have childcare needs that mean they have to be close to them (both have 45 minute commutes). They were coming into the office twice a week… but with 3 days notice they were told to come back 4 days. For somewhere that celebrated being a great place to work for women, that’s dead. The passive aggressive leadership is repugnant. Fourth line leader arrived in our hub having flown in from their ‘remote work from home location’. No hello, just a passive aggressive ‘why is it so quiet, are you all sleeping’ and then lock themselves in a meeting room not engaging with the team. That person needs to go asap as they are killing the SMB culture to the point of no repair. AE’s are coming up to me as a front line leader telling me they don’t trust senior leadership what so ever. That cannot be right Territories and targets are becoming unsustainable. Patches too small and customers oversold. We are an ‘and’ business but many of our customers are tapped out with spend and the bandwidth to implement. A typical 8 AE headcount patch is really more like 6 heads. Car parking costs in one of our offices has skyrocketed. $28 a day yet our name is on the building. Whoever negotiated that contract needs looking at. When this was brought up to senior leadership after the in office mandate, zero sympathy was given and a ‘cost of having a job here’ was the answer we got. The fun has gone. Vegas kick offs and team events were a huge carrot and fair compensation for how hard we work. Little to no investment on culture Layoffs needed to happen as we overhired. But the execution was very poor. They never offered voluntary severance which was a huge mistake. Over 50% of my peers that I’ve spoken to would take it now due to the impact on their mental health.14

The culture and the people you are surrounding with are unmatched to any other company. They’re smart, helpful, friendly, and welcoming. What I learned here allowed me to propel my career forward.
Pay is not competitive to what is out there in the market and it is very feast or famine in the sales world.

Culture, culture, culture. I've never worked in a place so positive and committed to their values. I can't say enough good things! Onboarding virtually is tough, but SF has made it easier. Great tech stack: Macbook Pro, iPhone, keyboard/mouse Benefits from day 1 (as soon as you enroll) Competitive pay for a BDR! $15k higher in base than I got at my last job and $5k-10k higher than most other places. OTE is also higher and attainable.
None that I can think of right now. I just started and I'm sure there will be hiccups along the way, but I'm confident that SF will support anything challenging that I face.

I convinced three of my former companies to purchase SFDC due to my direct efforts and I loved the idea of the company so much that I joined the Strategic team. I gained valuable experience using the most sophisticated CRM system, working with great colleagues and some of the best folks in the business. SFDC has great training and resources and products and the ability to earn good money and work with great customers. Their pay system was great and you did not have to be a forensic accountant to get what you earned. Then - - reality set in (read on)
Working in a non-Core team at Salesforce can be challenging, with limited control and access to accounts. The Core team often prioritizes their own products over other competing products, leading to missed opportunities and frustration. Despite being hired as a Co-Prime, non-Core reps often find themselves waiting on Core teams and dealing with obstacles in account access. Writing detailed sales plans and waiting for Core approvals can be time-consuming. Some reps choose to take matters into their own hands, but this can lead to conflicts with the Core team. In interviews for Salesforce sales roles, it's recommended to consider the Core role for more control and opportunities. Non-Core roles may come with challenges and limitations due to Core's influence.5

Best product out there hands down, forward thinking, diverse bag of products to sell makes for lots of opportunities. Great benefits package, 6 month maternity/paternity leave.
Pay is low relative to other SaaS companies and creating even territories is a challenge for management - some people thrive and others starve and it is typically not due to differences in skill set.3

Pay is above average; Salesforce is too big to be acquired by anyone; Public image is exceptional - especially in the Bay Area; Products are State of the Art in many areas; unlikely to fail for a long time; unbroken record of continuous growth
Culture has tanked after the massive layoffs in 2022/2023: politicking and backstabbing has always been an issue, and while being addressed it has increased massively after the layoffs as people are afraid for their jobs. There was no structure to the layoffs and a ton of critical & successful people were being let go - so everyone basically is afraid of being next. Salesforce is in a constant process of restructuring. The larger we've become the less likely it is to be able to have any way of impacting your trajectory. If you're lucky enough to stay in the same role for longer than 18 months, it's very likely that your management will have changed during that time. Branding yourself is therefore critical. If you're not successful in building your brand aggressively, you'll end up just being shuffled around with no say in the matter. Career planning is almost impossible because of that. No matter what role you apply for: it won't be the same in 12 months and you might end up doing something completely different over just a few years - if you want to or not. As we've grown to a real enterprise, micro management has taken hold. Salesforce used to operate on a system of trust and avoiding administration: needed to travel? just do whatever is necessary, the company trusted you to not overspend - results were what mattered. Nowadays it's like all other large enterprises: multiple approvers for every parking ticket and travel restrictions en masse. Traveling to customers was easy and encouraged, today it's unreasonably hard to travel.2
- 4.025 Apr 2023Software Engineering InternCurrent Intern, less than 1 yearBuenos Aires
If you love a workplace that checks all the corporate boxes this is the place for you. You get tons of benefits, the hours are flexible, they have a hybrid work model, where you can go into a beautiful office but only if you want to. Everyone is very friendly and eager to help out. The program for Interns is very hands on and helps new interns get adjusted to the company.
The pay is exclusively in argentinian pesos and not adjusted as much as one may like. The benefits are very abundant but some may prefer a higher pay rather than a wellbeing benefit. The environment is quite unstable lately given a big number of layoffs during january. There's currently a hire freeze that affected most Interns.

Perks are good. For a Support engineer salary is good but if you are a dev then pay is too low.
Won't recommend it for Developers as there is a lot of pressure in this role. Even you are good technically, this role won't benefit you as the work pressure and expectations are too high. Screen time too high - you cannot move 9 hours.1
