From san francisco, ca — 08/01/2008

Interview knowing that job probably does not exist

Pros

- Great resume-builder, since company is well-respected in the Saas space and CRM space
- Great SF location, right on Embarcadero with plenty of access to transit and food and nightlife
- Some good perks, and office is nicely designed
- If their "platform as a service" takes off, they will be very successful

Cons:

- They interview many people with no intention of hiring - only to gain outside ideas
- Culture at the top (VP and up) is ego-centric, jerk attitude towards lower employees and outsiders
- Make interviewees jump thru hoops (five separate in-person meetings plus a presentation!) only to be told, "sorry, we're hiring from within"
- No senior-level empathy for workload pounded onto people

Advice to Senior Management

- Yes, you are successful, but treat people with respect.
- Benioff's whole Buddhism-inspired culture is a sham
