    I worked at Salesforce full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The Salesforce name in it self is a big Pro. We being the most innovative company and how we care for the customers is very alluring. Heard great things about the culture before I joined. Our values and 1-1-1 philanthropy model gives a sense of what is priority for the firm - People. Great work-life balance if you are in the right teams. But not when you are 12.5 hrs ahead and working under managers from India. Also, open V2mom(Year goals) at the entire org level gives purpose for your career development plans.

    Cons

    There has been no attention paid to the mid level management that was hired. Especially in the IT Project team.
    People leave managers, not companies. I feel I work under a manager who is straight out of the Dilbert comic strip. Numerous attempts have been made to fix my working relationship with this manager, with no results. I strongly believe that there is severe incompetence for the role and position that this manager was hired for. Gaslighting, micromanagement, plagiarising ideas, absolute disregard for an employee’s personal time. Add to this the constant reminder of the said person’s insecurities being thrown around in the garb of constantly mentioning their decade-odd years of work experience. These are just some, among the many, problematic aspects that have caused demotivation.

    However. I would also like to clarify that the person in question is not bad or immoral. They only happen to be a bad fit in a managerial position. This company might be ranked as the best place to work at, but from an employee’s point of view, our life revolves around the people we work with/under, daily. It is unfortunate that it has as not fared well for me. It is quite drudgeoning to constantly hear the phrases “what!!!!!”, “that is not how it works” or “i don’t understand” up until today.

    Advice to Management

    As a suggestion, I would like to say this- If you, as a company/employer were to look for project roles, please probe for the person’s skill set. The person in question may possess a set of charming traits, but when it comes down to brass tacks they make no sense or difference to an efficient way of working. Please pay attention to the demotivated teams. The root cause may be just one person in the chain, holding better position than the rest of the team.
