Outsider here who’s considering a sales role in mid-market arena. Are reps making good money? Hitting targets? Does Salesforce require a lot of travel?
From what it seems to me, it can only get worse here. The atmosphere is very tense and I would prefer to find a new job before they show me the door. But what interests me is whether moving to a smaller company or a startup is risky? I am too... — read more
effective today, all HK employees are redundant.
No official word yet but people are finding accounts are being terminated for some of their coworkers. I'm not sure if this is true or not, so if anybody can confirm this for the US, that'd be great. This wouldn't be the first time Salesforce hit us... — read more
I have been here for a little over two years and in just such a short time I have noticed that the culture is slowly becoming more and more unhealthy. Brown nosers, those who take other people's credit, inflated egos - they are increasingly... — read more
It’s no secret Q2 has been exceptionally slower then in previous years across the sales, service and marketing clouds in North America as the recession looms. Sales teams are feeling the heat. Layoffs/reorg coming?
Recently I brought a home for 1.2 M in Bay Area, now I am scared of my job after reading this news "Bay Area home prices fell by $200,000 - $300,000" These news are everywhere Housing Market Crash, Another 2008 Housing Crash, Projects are... — read more
Anyone else planning to leave? What does your timeline look like?
I'm on the verge of giving up trying to get promoted and at this point I'd prefer to change companies. No matter how hard I try, no matter how much I show my boss that I'm ready for the promotion - I can't possibly get the promotion that I... — read more
I put in more effort here than I have in any other company I’ve worked for before, but it's almost not worth it in my case. I am disappointed and think more and more about leaving. The solution is not to get stuck here and work the bare minimum. I... — read more
Salesforce today is not the good old Salesforce, it is now a mini Oracle: politics; such as sucking up moving headcount to cheaper places (you know what I mean) great customer experience before the customer buys make the customer to speak at... — read more
We have an awesome WLB - the pay is very good but we are on a hiring freeze.
No one is even trying to communicate with our boss as we face very unrealistic expectations. Everyone knows in advance that it will not give any result. How do you deal with such high expectations?
Have been asked mandated cost cutting that means the pressure is on. Also to follow other measures, leadership has been asking for performance numbers, show why the work is not being done why poor execution, managers are being pushed hard to breaking... — read more

Make sure you're ready if it comes to pass.
There's a real hush hush recruitment freeze mandated at Salesforce. They're calling it a pause, but that's hardly surprising so close to earnings. Travel restrictions soon to follow it seems. Will be interesting to hear how they spin the first... — read more
I am an outsider and looking at a position with Salesforce, but want to ask if Salesforce customers are generally getting a good customer experience these days? At my current organization, the support organization has been so poorly structured that... — read more
There was a stealth layoff across product management in marketing cloud and platform last week. Around 50 people impacted. There will be more of those as this don’t require any disclosure.
It seems a lot of people are headed out the door.
Pretty much everyone who left says the grass is much greener outside and they are now paid much better. What no one is saying is whether they have to work much harder for that higher pay. Is the grass really that much greener than here? I need a... — read more
I'm just checking to see if anyone knows anything.
today is my last day in ASEAN office , this place is no more the same place as before . It became a heaven for Oracle , IBM, & SAP alumnis with one main dominant nationality. March is the date , wait for it !
Nothing to worry about with the geniuses running the company... First we buy Tableau SW for $16B and then we buy Slack for $28B....and the market loves it !! That's why our stock is down 40% over the last 3 months. Can wait to see what they... — read more
I hear rumors about layoffs and I can’t believe it. Is it possible that they are making such stupid decisions? We are so understaffed, we can barely function as is. Cuts can only encourage those who survive to start leaving, as the burden on... — read more

Someone needs to tell the CEO a d his inclusive capitalism groupies and elites that iota not good for country or USA. Just his global pocket
Been here for 7 yrs and I am growing disillusioned. This pandemic finally made me see things in a different light.
My partner is at the final stages of interviewing for the position but his explanation wasn’t that great, can someone clarify? Also reading a lot of these posts makes me nervous for him, seems like salesforce heyday is long over.
