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 about all the negative sides of employment at Salesforce, it'll be here.

If you want to be part of globalist Inclusive capitalists and surveillance state team join ahead.
Ask yourself if you want to work for a devil company that supports the rollout of the largest medical, immoral experiment in history, the experiment that breaks the Nurnberg Code! Along with Microsoft, Wallmart, and others, they push heavily for so-called "vaccine passports" (https://www.nytimes.com/2021/03/17/technology/walmart-vaccine-verification-app.html). It means that, contrary to their PR policy, they benefit from and support further limiting human rights around the globe. They support the idea of locking people in apartments and homes. They support the destruction of small businesses, which are not their clients anyway. On top of this, Salesforce already trolled out a product named "Vaccine Cloud" or something like this to squeeze every single dollar from the pandemic opportunity.
So, on moral grounds, I wouldn't join a company that is a significant player in WEF (World Economic Forum), and its boss calls Klaus Schwab a "friend".
It is an absolute soul s—ing place to work. It is a miserable place that is run by bully pulpit. If you enjoy being treated like dirt and being constantly stressed beyond belief, Salesforce is for you. I’m actively looking to get out as fast as I can.
Pay can be good. Your happiness or lack there of will depend entirely on your manager and management chain. Have your armor, countermeasures and weapons ready either way. Always bow when you see your superiors approaching.
Please define “good”. It’s like a Russian roulette. You may be ok or you may be not. Decide if you want to accept the risk. In general it’s a mess, horrible leadership, zero accountability and BS called “Ohana”. So, don’t believe the hype about “Great Place to Work”.
I think it depends on your personal experiences. You could be joining the best company, best culture, best place to work, most admired etc
At the end of the day like any company in is pot luck who you’ll end up having as a manager And whether that person is supportive of your success.
If you’re a person who likes to churn, mould yourself into an environment that is Salesforce, do as you are told then it seems to be the place to be.
Sales is a churn machine and layoffs across the board have increased in volume and frequency. Growth rates are the lowest they’ve ever been and companies much larger are posting cloud growth in the 25-30% range. SF is posting around 19%.
They do have great benefits, fun characters for their software, and the sales CRM is the best. Hands down.
Depends on the group & manager. I landed in a group (in one of the acquired companies) under a couple layers of awful managers. Manager was worse than people I worked for in food service in high school. Worst job/experience of my 20+ year career. Couldn’t leave fast enough.
On the flip side, the fellow who referred me in (he’s an engineer developing one of the clouds) has been there 8 years and it’s quite content. Another friend from grad school has been there 10 years (in sales) and loves it.
Depends on which area. I was in Business Technology for a number of years and is very toxic especially if you are a POC. CSG does layoffs annually at least. I have a number of friends in TNP and things seem a bit better.
