Glassdoor’s 2019 Best Places to Work ranked Salesforce #11 out of 100 large companies. Other companies that made the rank include Google, lululemon, Facebook, SAP, LinkedIn, In-N-Out Burger, and Bain & Company.
The job and recruitment website based the ranking according to the reviews and input provided by employees on their working environment, employer, and jobs over the previous year. The list ranks the companies with at least a thousand employees according to the score they received from existing and former employees.
This was not the first time Salesforce was included in the list. The company was also among Glassdoor’s best places to work in 2009, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2016, 2017, and 2018. Through these years, Salesforce was always at the list’s top 50 companies with four of these years ranked them at the top 20.
Excellent employee reviews
Employees reviewed the company positively for its growth. They see and feel this growth through the new product announcements, sales deals, acquisitions, and expansion into major cities locally and overseas.
Although it can be a tough place to work, employees state the company places great emphasis on having a healthy work-life balance. Employees receive competitive benefits in the tech industry like healthy food options at work, gym memberships, and maternity and paternity leaves.
Employees love the company’s corporate philanthropy program. Volunteer rate is quite high and some employees joined Salesforce so they can participate in the program.
Recognition acknowledged by award-giving bodies
Fortune also recognized the CRM company in their list of 100 Best Places to Work For in 2018 and 2019. They ranked second in 2019 and first in 2018. The company also placed in Fortune’s list for Best Workplaces for Millennials, for Women, in Bay Area, in Chicago, for Diversity, and for Parents.
Aside from Salesforce’s U.S. locations, the company’s Singapore office was also recognized as the #1 Best Work Place to Work in the country. The highlight of this award is the recognition for fostering an inclusive workplace, their philanthropic efforts, and the organization’s culture of Ohana (the Hawaiian term for “family”).
