    Pros

    Benefits.
    Free food.
    Free transport pick and drop.

    Cons

    - the system is biased here.
    - no career growth.
    - There are 2 sets of rules rules for US people and India guys though company talks about equality.
    - surveys are treated as everything here and its the only metric that the management follows here for individual growth and nothing’s else is considered.
    - no right to take leave on public holidays.
    - Bringing other company folks in bulk as part of Salesforce ruined the culture of Salesforce.
    - non professional guys being hired.
    - no fun at work or entertainment all you have to think of cases only.
    - high pressure
    - more of a BPO job.
    - if you love coding **** please don’t join support*****

    Advice to Management

    Management please stop hiring/promoting fools who doesn’t even have common sense. Management should change the mentality of “Number games”.

    Pros

    Salesforce is an awesome place to work. I was fortunate enough to work with few teams in Salesforce during my tenure. Demo Engineering was one of them so when I heard about some rumblings about this team, I thought of sharing my perspective.

    DE is one of the most amazing teams in Salesforce to work. It houses some of the best talents from the Industry with diverse cultural background. If you bring two things to the table talent and right attitude then irrespective of your gender, age or experience you get the spot on this team. I’ve seen leadership bring in lot of fresh talent with almost no experience but with right attitude. Also there have been cases when folks with not-so-great english were also given opportunity solely based on their talent.

    How to use technology to bring transparency in an organization is something one should learn from Salesforce. From number of demos you worked on, number of hrs you logged or even number of times your received appreciation, everything is open and accessible at each level from your peers to top global leadership.

    DE Team is entrusted with task of delivering successful demos where you are racing against time. There is lot of support and encouragement not just from leadership but even from within the team. During my initial days, team helped me learn and get up to speed with work. Whenever I was stuck with anything, team was just a call away. I’ve never worked in a team with such strong sense of ownership till now. During my tenure, India team was leader among global teams in delivering most number of successful demos.

    There is lot of focus from on your professional and personal growth. I’ve seen people getting nominated for various technical and leadership trainings. Also, Salesforce was kind enough to identify and sponsor trainings for folks who face challenge in communication. You are encouraged to create your own development plan keeping your talent and aspirations in mind. Leadership helps create various growth opportunities for each team member. There is guidance and coaching available for each member. I've seen successful transitions from this team into various roles within Salesforce and even outside.

    In their pursuit of giving back to society, Salesforce encourages each employee to volunteer. They not only provide paid time off for such volunteering activities but also give hefty sum of $2000 as a grant which each employee can donate. Volunteering activities are available throughout the year and employees are free to choose them as per their interests and beliefs. DE is one of the few teams in Salesforce where each team member proudly achieves their volunteering goals every year.

    Salesforce provides flexibility of work hours and work from home. Each team defines their own schedule and work hours keeping healthy overlap between their global peers. DE work hours in India are 9-5. At times you are required to get on a call with global peers late evening or early mornings but the folks are always considerate of the fact.

    Cons

    Nothing I could think of.

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

    Pros

    Salesforce has a very clearly articulated value proposition and has some of the best Product Management & Engineering talent in the industry. The company also allows sufficient freedom to explore technologies etc and the 4 month cycle of cloud releases allows for continuous challenges and results.
    The company has very good employee benefits and values individuals.

    Cons

    Salesforce is extremely HQ centric .
    While not a complete con - A lot of the company's growth is fueled through inorganic acquisition as opposed to organic efforts within the company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing on the growth engine!
