In this list, Soffront joined other CRM companies, such as SalesForce, Infusionsoft, Zoho and NetSuite as a premier workplace in the estimated $146 billion CRM market by 2017, according to Gartner.
The great thing about this article is it accurately featured all the reasons we love working here at Soffront. Those include factors like the ability to do a good job in a fairly autonomous environment and be appreciated for it. The other thing we enjoyed seeing was how the article pointed out the niche we inhabit in the crowded CRM field, combining sales and marketing in one CRM package.
I think everyone here would agree that our CEO, Manu, is an inspirational leader who only expects what he expects of himself and is also driving us to do our best. He also bears in mind that we have families too and there’s only so many hours in a day. A sense of realistic perspective is a nice thing in Silicon Valley.
It reminds me of Sheryl Sandberg, COO at Facebook, who leaves each night at 5:30 so she can have dinner with her husband and children. While everyone loves working here at Soffront, Manu realizes we have important other jobs being with our families.
I even think that the somewhat negative comment that lateral mobility sometimes supersedes vertical growth could also be seen as a sign of strength.
