Women's Job Satisfaction
and equally to men

Don't let the fact that they have been in the press lately with a stunt to pay women equal to men fool you. This is not a work place of equality for women and men. This is a true boys club but the biggest disappointment about Salesforce.com is that they are not willing to accommodate women with small children. The job is very demanding and although they claim to be family first, the unwritten rules are the opposite. If you have to leave early for a reason related to your children or get to the office a little late due to school drop offs, expect your "brand" to decrease dramatically. It's incredible that a "work anywhere, from any device company" also demands that you are always in the office. This amounts to an incredible lack of trust. Also the monthly quota cadence, is unaligned with a strategic sales approach. This makes succeeding very difficult as well unless you are touted as a favorite. (This is not sour grapes but right from the mouth of an AVP. They single out a few sales people they will put stock in.)

The benefits at Salesforce are absolutely excellent. As a company, they are also very transparent and do their best to make sure everyone has the things they need to make them better at their job. I was in a support role, not in their main office, so I was not in a position to advance during the time I spent there. It wasn't very exciting as far as office positions go, but it was stable, I felt respected by my peers and paid very well. Marc Benioff is the kind of CEO you want running your company. He is making an effort to consciously close the gap on pay in equality, gave benefits to same sex couples before anyone else was doing it (PULLED HIS BUSINESS FROM INDIANA) and encourages volunteering time money and assets. If you want a place that will definitely take care of you as an employee, I would recommend SFDC. The hours can be long, but they also pay overtime.
I've worked here for over 3 years and have both positive and negative feelings about how women are treated here. Positive: For a tech company, there are plenty of women working here, close to 25/30% I would estimate, which is on the high side for technology companies. There is flexibility in work schedule which means working moms can work from home. Negative: There is still very much a boys club in play. It seems like women have to work twice as hard to prove themselves worthy of promotions and even then, there is hesitation. It seems like the elephant in the room is always "if we promote this person, are they still going to be willing to put in 80 hours a week after they have kids?" Maternity leave is completely unpaid. Depending on what state you live you, you may or may not have up to 12 weeks off.
Have things gotten better, worse, or stayed the same for women at Salesforce in the past year?

Salesforce is on a mission to hire and promote more women and minorities. It's so refreshing to work at a place where equality and inclusion are part of the core values.0%
