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
Topics regarding layoffs at Salesforce.com Inc.
I saw on another thread that someone was laid off. Can anyone confirm that layoffs are or have happened recently? I haven’t heard anything and I’m wondering if this was an isolated case or just someone trying to stir the pot. Any information to... — read more
If I had found another job, I would try to forget that I had ever worked here. The best people are leaving and they are doing nothing to stop this trend. Although, maybe they can’t do it now, because that would require radical changes that can’t... — read more
I think this is a double-edged sword. When people choose this and show that their jobs can be done fully from home, how long do you think it'll take Salesforce to lay them off and outsource those same jobs to another country where it can get three or... — read more
I've been offered a job and I'm doing my due diligence by checking all around for reviews of current and former employees. Glassdoor and Indeed have been informative but nothing has been as eye-opening as this place. I guess if I'm going to learn... — read more
They advertise that you can make $10-$15K in overtime when you get hired or promoted and they’ve now limited everyone to 45 hours per week using intimidation tactics and folks are scared to say anything in fear of getting worse patches in February. — read more
“Salesforce Announces Strong Fourth Quarter and Full Year Fiscal 2021 Results Raises FY22 Revenue Guidance to $25.65 Billion to $25.75 Billion” Can't help but wonder when will the next announcement for another layoff be?
Not many details, just that people are being let go to 'right-size' the organization. It seems a small number are impacted, though no details on the exact number.
I'm wondering how many people who've been laid off in the last round have managed to find new positions already. I'm sure people here still talk with their former colleagues, can you tell us how they're doing? In case another round is coming, it'd be... — read more
I know of two people who were fired in the last several weeks. Not laid off, no severance offered. Just pack your stuff and leave. This has me worried since I know one of them was an excellent worker. I can't figure out for the life of me what reason... — read more
I was recently impacted at Blackbaud due to “restructuring.” I consistently hit my goals, went the extra mile with special projects, and was a huge team player. I’m now up for a couple Solution Engineer roles on the .Org side, either service... — read more
For those impacted by this round of layoff, could you share what severance pay will people receive in the agreement as well as other severance benefits ? Hope everyone impacted will land again soon.
I believe you are all familiar with this, but it has now been officially announced that Salesforce is paying more than 27 billion dollars for Slack and I wonder if it is well invested money? How can this help the company and what could be the... — read more

I used to truly love working here. When did things change so much for us that now I'm dreading work and I have lost all motivation to do anything but the bare minimum? The latest layoffs didn't help, but it started before that. What happened to this... — read more
What's the story guys, are they going to have another round of firing. I am specifically looking for insight in ASEAN as the leadership here is horrible and all that they look for is scape goats
For your team, has anything changed since you started?
Apparently UK and Ireland are being informed today. So we get to wait eagerly in anticipation. The absolutely gall of these people. In a way Im thankful for this reminder on the reality of corporate culture. Admittedly I drank the Ohana kool... — read more
I think it's been made clear to all of us there's no future at Salesforce for anybody who's a hard worker but who refuses to kiss the right behind. I'm sad to say this, but this place has turned into a nest of nepotism and cronyism - and anybody... — read more
Does anybody know where these 12000 new jobs next year are going to be based or how to apply?
Revenue up 29% and we are upping the sales forecast for year end and somehow now seems to be the time for layoffs? Seems most were in Sales and customer support areas, at least for now. But most MB would comment is that he doesn't see more layoffs... — read more
There's been talk about more layoffs at Salesforce, any ideas on when we can expect them?
I am part of an entire support pillar that was let go. The product will now only be supported by brand new agents in India. Good Luck clients.
I was laid off. How many of you are going with COBRA. If not COBRA then what?
Prior to the layoffs last month I believed I would be one of those fortunate ones to be passed over. I kept telling my wife not to worry because for years I had always been a top performer who exceeded yearly goals. How wrong I was. This company... — read more
There are also a lot of people with inflated titles for the little scope they manage. Directors reporting to directors and VP reporting to VPs. People get promoted for doing the same job as a life time achievement award as opposed to having business... — read more
I was talking to a buddy about Salesforce and the decision to lay people off amid good results and he told me his old company used to do that - cut people in anticipation of a downturn. But what you think about it, this is kind off forcing a... — read more
I was laid off on Tuesday. It was a complete shock. I’ve been a top performer for years. Been promoted 5 times in 9 years, selected for executive leadership programs, surpassed annual goals etc. This was not performance based, it was a true... — read more
Salesforce Ohana Refugees- There is a facebook group, Salesforce Refugees, that has been setup to help support those effected by the layoff. Also, there is a Salesforce Alumni group on LinkedIn as well which is a great place to seek support. Good... — read more
About 1000-2000 employees are in the process of being laid off this week, mostly within the Sales organization and sub teams within specialists and enablement. The organization is planning to run extremely lean next year with little to no special... — read more
Salesforce is a great employer, better than any other I worked for in the past anyway. Blessing and a problem are the "golden handcuffs". Financial incentives, wellness perks and other benefits make it difficult to leave the company especially in the... — read more
Do you know how many people were let go in MuleSoft and which deparment?
UK and Germany are both affected. Seems like Germany have a longer period to find a new role. UK employees are going through a risk of redundancy collective consultation for 30 days where I suppose they give an answer? Then they kindly offer a 15... — read more
For six years (2004-2010), MB sold 10,000 to 20,000 shares of CRM stock in the open market for $500k+. Not annually. Not quarterly. Not monthly. Daily. EVERY SINGLE EFFIN' DAY FOR SIX EFFIN'... — read more
