They were ranked first in best place to work, but my friends there don’t really agree and keep trying to get into Google/FB.

What kind of perks or TC do they get that makes them the best employer in the US?

    They were ranked first in a BS list were you paid to get on it and where Google and Facebook weren't participating. Look at the LinkedIn or Glassdoor lists for a more realistic list.

      Sure but they by no means are the number one most desirable employer. I'm sure they treat their employees well but I for one would never work there since I hate their product and I'm not a fan of Benioff.

    The people are generally nice, relaxed and laid back. My ideas have thus far felt listened to. I have some say in how much work I’m able to take on. I’ve worked at two other places before, and this is one of the better experiences I’ve had. I haven’t worked at fang or mandglust or whatever acronym they’re throwing around here though.

      I actually am not sure what the policy exactly is, but it’s pretty common. Some people work from remote offices/Home offices. We use hangouts extensively, an excellent product for which I thank you. :)

    It's a laid-back culture which treats its employees like humans. Not cutthroat enough like Amazon, not siloed enough like apple, doesn't fire enough like Netflix, not short term oriented like fb.

    The only 2 companies even comparable are Google and Microsoft.

    Good work life balance. Decent pay. Interesting work if you look for it. Really easy to switch teams if you're a developer so you have some control on your happiness. As in if you have an asshole manager or team lead, you can just move out. No problems. Consequently, the no asshole policies is pretty ingrained in our culture.... At least on the lower levels. Also good work from home policy. I work from home at least twice a week.

    I have been working here more than 6years and I can say that work life balance is super great here.

    Google and Facebook are top most popular companies and they are consumer based products.. they are building more innovative products than Salesforce. Salesforce is also investing on innovation but not that much scale as majority of products are enterprise software products.

    I guess it’s not because of TC but because of Trust, Transparency, culture and work life balance.
