What is just a marketing campaign to look like cool Hawaian atmosphere at the time to attract attention?
Heard murmurs about this. Cutting duplicate roles across parallel orgs; operational streamliling. Anyone with more details?
It's taken me 30 minutes to load three dashboards today because they keep turning up a variety of errors... I work in sales and it's been predatory so stressful I feel lucky to be alive. What is our dev team doing? Are these great Glassdoor reviews... — read more
Here it's become unbearable. Have you ever worked in a company this dysfunctional before?
So far I have always been as dedicated as possible to my work but now I am totally demoralized. I don't think it's worth working more than the minimum necessary to get the job done. Moreover, I believe that after these cuts productivity will drop... — read more
If until now there were still some employees who trusted this leadership, I think that the remaining employees here will no longer have any trust at all in those at the top. Lack of trust will additionally sabotage productivity and retention. This... — read more
Were you affected? Coworker asked HR and they blame a system error.
The way these cuts were managed is very unprofessional. I hear from some people that they didn't get details about the severance pay. That is the ultimate proof that they do not respect employees at all. Couldn't at least the communication have... — read more
Unless you were intentionally avoiding the truth, the writing was on the wall for these layoffs. Tech layoffs have been happening all around us and it was only a matter of time before we were hit with a major round. I hope everybody who was affected... — read more
I hope that the number of affected will not actually be much higher.
Performance issues are mentioned as the main criterion for these layoffs, but I am extremely anxious even though I have a good performance simply because I no longer trust this company.
I’ve heard from colleagues affected that severance was only 8 weeks. Very different from 2020 layoffs. They had been here for 4+ years. All on base not ote.
Despite the fact that many companies now have a hiring freeze and that it is not the best time to be laid off, for the first time since I have been here I hope that I will be cut. Anyone else? This company has become a complete mess. I no longer... — read more
So, are you guys hiring or firing?
I can confirm 100% to layoffs for AEs at Slack and Mulesoft, and I've heard of some in FINS (financial services). Mostly underachievers (for now)...
Heard some AE’s were laid off this morning. Might be more coming.
I know of a few public sector aes laid off this morning
My former colleague told me she was laid off yesterday, 10/25/2022. We worked in content marketing. She was surprised by the layoff. I haven't heard this reported anywhere.
Read an article (in the San Francisco Chroncile) last week that Salesforce to lay off 90 staff in the San Francisio HQ. Any truth to that?
It's pretty much like sweeping the problem under the carpet because a cheaper workforce can only make some problems seem less noticeable for a while. Perhaps some will disagree, but I'm afraid that in the long run it could only create new... — read more
Is anybody else thoroughly annoyed that in the same year we've had several layoff rounds (not large, but still) and a hiring freeze now we're doing a major hiring push? There are hundreds of open positions currently. My thinking and worry are that... — read more
Is there going to be any reorg or Salesforce layoffs? Any chatter, news or rumors?
I have gotten used to working from home. In fact, I'm at the point where I can't even imagine having to waste nearly two hours of my life each day driving to work and back. Working from home has not affected my productivity, on the contrary. Having... — read more
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?
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
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
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
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.
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
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
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
