what are people saying about working at salesforce?
Good culture, great work life balance
Great company to work, clear leadership, vision, and goals
Great 401k match, pay, PTO, and they encourage you to take time off for yourself.
No innovation, especially on engineering side
Salesforce is a business oriented company, so no high tech is present there. Some orgs are stuck at Java 6

“Successful Salesforce engineers are great at writing code, and in order to find out how great you are at writing code, we use a programming test. The programming test is one of the best ways to gauge your coding skills. That’s why our test makes sure you have an editor, a debugger, and a good amount of time to analyze a problem and form a solution—it’s more than just how well you react under pressure.”
“We use HackerRank as our coding platform. This means that you can take the test at a time that works for you—whether that’s during the day or in the middle of the night. When you move to this stage in the process, we provide you with setup information and a link to start the test. "
