For the fifth year in a row, salesforce.com has earned a spot on FORTUNE Magazine’s 100 Best Companies to Work For list.
Last year we moved up from #52 to #27, and this year we cracked the Top 20 for the first time with a #19 ranking!
FORTUNE's highly regarded list publicly recognizes industry leaders like Google, Cisco, and salesforce.com for their commitment to customers, partners, and the communities they serve, and for the dynamic culture their employees have built together.
So why is salesforce.com, the enterprise cloud computing leader, the best company to work for? We’ll leave it to the employees to answer that.
“I am much more in tune to the happenings within our business than I ever have been within past companies.” – Monica Youngblood, Productivity Manager
“I have often said to my family and friends that salesforce.com treats me like family. They’re amazed at some of the things salesforce.com does for us.” – Michael Basch, AVP, Commercial Sales – Health/Life Sciences
“Salesforce.com is an incredibly unique place to work in that it invests an
unparalleled amount of resources on developing its workforce from the ground
up.” – Arielle Schwartz, Enterprise
“Salesforce.com has always done a good job building teamwork and making people feel part of the results. This not only makes people more engaged, but reinforces their self-worth and continued motivation.” – Kate FitzGerald, VP, Worldwide Sales, Service Cloud
“There is no secret agenda that a group of executives is hatching in a walled-off meeting. Marc (Benioff) is perfectly transparent, authentic and consistent. This is one of the best hallmarks of our culture.” – Neeracha Taychakhoonavudh, SVP, CFL Strategy and Operations
To pick the “100 Best,” FORTUNE partners with the Great Place to Work Institute to conduct the most extensive employee survey in corporate America: 259 firms participated in this year’s survey. More than 277,000 employees at those companies responded to a survey created by the institute, a global research and consulting firm operating in 45 countries around the world. Two-thirds of a company’s score is based on the results of the institute’s Trust Index survey, which is sent to a random sample of employees from each company. The other third is based on responses to the institute’s Culture Audit, which includes detailed questions about pay, benefit programs, methods of internal communication, recognition programs and more.
