Does Salesforce offer massages?

Pros

Lots of perks such as dedicated baristas making free drinks, free ice cream, great snack selection, huge kitchen. High value skillsets in use such as remote desktop management, best in class security infrastructure, and plenty of room to grow.

Cons

Demanding work pace with horrible office politics. Legacy team members spreading a toxic work ethic seem to be so deep rooted it would take an army to unseat them. Management that are focused on moving up and don't want problems, no matter what methods are used to make problems 'disappear'.

Advice to Management

Take a long hard look in the mirror and decide if this is the path you really want to be on. Ohana culture is dead in Techforce. If you want to bring it back, terminate your toxic employees immediately and the culture will begin to heal.

Does Salesforce offer dental insurance?

Pros

Company benefits such as wellness reimbursement, volunteering opportunities, health and dental insurance, company laptop. There is opportunities to shadow people in different departments across the company regardless of your position. This was great for exposure and networking. You are given real meaningful work that makes a difference. You are part of a team that contributes to the business. Interns are treated as equals to other staff, we are given a voice and our opinions are valued.

Cons

I was emergency taxed in my first pay slip and I found it difficult to resolve this issue.

Advice to Management

Become more aligned with Payroll for Summer Interns. Have a direct line of contact between Payroll and the Interns. The majority of interns are coming from other countries so this would be a huge financial burden to them.

Does Salesforce have a pension plan?

Pros

- Good coaching culture - managers & other BDRs often deliver sessions to help develop others. - Lots of online training available via Trailhead - for SF products & industry/soft skills. - Benefits such as pension, discounted share prices, health insurance, and others. - Free snacks & coffees in the office. - Opportunity to make a lot of $ & career progression very quickly. - Lots of incentives & Presidents' Club.

Cons

- As a BDR you are competing against 2 other roles (AE & ECS) for the same target, which I found extremely difficult to work with. - Ego everywhere. - Hugely stressful job. My 3-star review is a mix of Salesforce as a company (5 stars) & the BDR role (1 star). Salesforce is a great company, with a great portfolio of solutions, & a great CEO. I believe had I a different role, I would be submitting a very different review. However, from my experience, I simply cannot openly recommend the BDR role. It's seen as a necessary stepping stone role towards AE, is an awful role in itself, and I found myself dreading going into work every day & always came home stressed.

Does Salesforce offer life insurance?

Pros

Great benefits, maternity, PTO & insurance coverage.

Cons

Not really seeing much equality at least for my team. Focus is always on HQ folks or team members located in same office with manager. No matter how much hardwork, time, effort & success stories long serving regional folks have, promotions & opportunities always go to HQ & new hires.

Great benefits, maternity, PTO & insurance coverage.
