For your team, has anything changed since you started?

Like any company, it has positives and negatives! It depends what you’re looking for, for high volume, intensive, Ohana, sales, self-promotion, great marketing, hierarchical management, great place to work, perks and all of that... then join?
For making an impact, no b—s—, good leaders, reward for skills, building communities, innovation, creativity... then think again!
It's a horrible place to be. I can specifically talk about pre sales and sales in sales and service cloud. The managers have grown by sheers licking and no talent. All they know is to proove you are wrong for no rhyme or reason. You will spend 15 hours a week just in reviews. This can be proved by the amount of people leaving. They then say that the person was not Salesforce material. C-ap. Don't join
Um... what's not to understand?
MuleSoft is a company Salesforce acquired and part of their product portfolio. If a person joins Salesforce in the MuleSoft business unit, it is a different experience than joining elsewhere in the company.
I have no idea what comment below means.
Can't speak for Salesforce proper but if you're looking at MuleSoft... find out how long your manager & skip level have been there. If they're reasonably new (past 2 years or so), you'll probably be joining a well-led team with forward looking leadership. Many of the folks that have been around longer are convinced that they know everything because they got the company IPO'd and bought. I lost count of the number of times I was told I was too new for my opinion/input/insights to count (despite over a decade of industry experience in other companies).
On a personal (not professional) level, though, almost everyone I met (new hire and OG) was super nice and many are what I'd call great people; there were 3 (out of about 1000) I disliked/loathed.
MuleSoft management is variable - my manager is absolutely terrible; my skip level is just as bad. However, I saw a lot of folks that seemed like they'd be great to work for.
MuleSoft culture Salesforce culture. If you join MuleSoft thinking you're joining Salesforce, you're in for a disappointment.
I was immensely proud to join Salesforce in 2019; my experience has been so terrible, I can't wait to leave at the end of this year.
I was there for a while, not great - the company virtue signals like crazy, and on the surface has amazing perks but there is somewhat of and old school toxic underbelly among sales management - I saw it first hand during the pandemic and have talked to other people who have been around who have told me SF has a big revolving door with sales staff...
Not being pompous, that's what the recruiter and hiring managers told me.
I guess every is in the same boat trying to navigate through the pandemic as best as they can.
Lol that’s mighty pompous of you to presume
Is this a bad time to join SF? I'm up for 2 positions and should be receiving offers this week for them.
It is a mess.
