Working At Salesforce

San Francisco-based Salesforce is the premier Customer Success Platform. But it is so much more than that. Some companies work to have a good culture within the ranks of their employees, but Salesforce is sort of a cultural phenomenon itself, reinventing the way that companies treat employees, customers, and communities. Salesforce can't stop winning awards for their amazing work environment. For 12 years running, they've been named in the Fortune Top 100 Companies to Work For in the country.

Engineer William Schmitt had this to say about Salesforce: "I knew that I wanted to work at a place that had great leadership and offer mentorship on modern technology. Fortunately for me, I found a company, Salesforce, with a CEO that prioritized equality, Ohana, and innovation above all else. At Salesforce, I found mentors and products willing to help me develop skills on the latest development stacks and architectures."

Diving Into the Values at Salesforce

Thoughtful and Human

  • Trust: Nothing is more important to Salesforce than the trust between them and employees and them and customers.
  • Customer Success: Salesforce's growth is based on mutual success. When a customer grows, so does Salesforce.
  • Innovation: Salesforce has technology in place to empower trailblazers and innovative thinking.
  • Equality: Respect permeates every inch of Salesforce. They are creating a better workplace and world, together, with everyone involved.
  • Salesforce also dedicates a lot of power to sustainability and social responsibility. They say that the environment is a key stakeholder in their business and that they believe business is the greatest platform for social change.

    Patrick Flynn, Salesforce's VP of Sustainability said, "The planet needs bold action now, which is why at Salesforce we are committed to ambitious climate leadership solutions that create ripple effects. We're on a mission to drive urgent action."

    The Culture at Salesforce


    Salesforce has become more than a company. Through its social responsibility and an incredible level of equality, it has become almost like its own lifestyle. The culture at Salesforce is also built on its own set of guiding principles. Those are:

  • Integrity
  • Transparency
  • Alignment
  • Accountability
  • Salesforce is really like one big family. People really like spending time with each other, because Salesforce is smart in the way they hire and onboard. And people actually feel like they can hang out with each other because the work-life balance at Salesforce is second to none. The company wants its employees to have lives outside of work.

    The Office at Salesforce

    Made in San Francisco

    The Salesforce HQ is in the heart of San Francisco. It is located in the Salesforce Tower. The office is located in one of the most culturally diverse and active cities in The United States. It is also smack dab in the middle of a burgeoning and active tech epicenter, were intelligent and like-minded people coalesce to find meaningful work. The office space itself comes with all the amenities one might expect, stocked kitchen, gym, parking, etc, and is equipped with the highest tech gear.

    Though the HQ is in San Francisco, Salesforce has offices all around the country, and the world, all located in lively parts of their respective cities. The other U.S. offices are located in:

  • Atlanta
  • Boston
  • Chicago
  • Indianapolis
  • New York City
  • Bellevue, WA
  • Washington D.C.
  • The Benefits at Salesforce

    Best in the Biz

    Just like every other aspect of the business, Salesforce is completely committed to equality when it comes to the way that they reward their employees for the hard work they do. That is why they have, for example, gone on to take the Equal Pay Pledge. They pay every employee fairly. The benefits and perks offered at Salesforce are seemingly endless. To start, some of them are:

  • 401k with above-market match
  • Generous employee stock options program
  • Pre-tax commuter benefits
  • Comprehensive medical, dental & vision
  • $100 a month wellness reimbursement
  • Adoption, surrogacy & fertility benefits
  • Meal reimbursement for new parents and college counseling for dependents
  • 24-7 Emergency travel assistance
  • Up to $5,000 a year in education reimbursement
  • And that's just the tip of the iceberg. Salesforce has a boatload of great career development perks that they are dying for their employees to utilize. Their onboarding process, Trailhead, is one of the best onboarding programs out there. Employees can pick their own path and pace to learn to make their transition into their new career as seamless as possible. Salesforce also has a great mentoring and job shadowing program. And they love to promote from within. With the rapid growth of the company, there are always new positions popping up for some vertical movement.

    Going right along with the company's belief in giving back to the communities that they serve in, Salesforce offers employees up to 7 days, or 56 hours, off for paid volunteer time. At the end of each year, the top 100 volunteers in the company receive $10,000 grants to donate to the charity of their choice, and the top 10 volunteers get recognized at the annual leadership meeting in Hawaii. Salesforce also matches donations of up to 5 grand per year and puts on their own philanthropic events, such as the Surf for Life event. They make giving back almost too easy here at Salesforce.

    The Organization’s Mission

    Salesforce. Org is based on a simple idea: leverage Salesforce's technology, people, and resources to help improve communities around the world. We call this integrated philanthropic approach the 1-1-1 model because it started with a commitment to leverage 1% of Salesforce's technology, people, and resources to improve communities around the world. By encouraging and enabling companies to adopt the 1-1-1 model, Salesforce. Org is helping to spark a worldwide corporate giving revolution.

    Perks of Working at Salesforce

    Salesforce offers above market average 401k plan, ability to participate in the employee stock purchase program, competitive salary, commuter benefits, $100 per month wellness reimbursement, paid time off, and other perks.
