    I have been working at Concur full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It's rare to find a successful company where the three founders are not only still at the company 20 years later, but are actively engaged and involved with the daily operations and strategy of the business. There is a real effort to maintain a strong culture and adhere to company values, which isn't always easy or successful with 4000 employees. Not every effort is a success and I'm sure others have had weaker managers, but when you look across this business as a whole, it's a unique place to work.

    Cons

    It's a very distributed workforce which is a change from the business just five years ago. A lot of the growth is in other states or countries, so if you're someone who needs to feel like you are sitting next to all of your important colleagues, you may not be comfortable. End of the year raises and bonuses seems to be a bit disorganized which is probably related to the rapid growth and trying to manage that with new systems.

    I have been working at Concur as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Transparent and communicative management, collaborative culture, supportive coworkers, excellent culture

    Cons

    Not entirely clear how the path to conversion from intern to full-time works, but this is a new program so I'll give them the benefit of the doubt for now.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the communication to your employees - it's great to hear first hand how our high-level strategic objectives are moving forward. Do everything possible to maintain the culture through the coming months of customer growth and new employee hiring.

    I have been working at Concur full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great work life balance, a lot of growth, fair salaries, flexible schedules. I also love the people who work here and the company culture. Best company I've ever worked for.

    Cons

    Company is changing fast and the information doesn't get passed to employees in the best way. I feel like too many new projects are going on at once.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on one thing at a time and hire more US based employees as we grow.

    Pros

    Culture is first class. Amazing co-workers, amazing company sponsored events. They truly make the office a fun place to be at! Ping pong, pool table, Foosball table, free lunches all the time, happy hours etc. They also shower you with resources to help you succeed. Couldn't be happier!

    Cons

    No complaints here... after working at other companies prior to Concur, this is BY FAR the best company to work for in the Northwest in my opinion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to care...

    I have been working at Concur full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I love working for TripIt. Managers are very supportive here and there's a strong emphasis on career development, which I love. I feel like there's no glass ceiling and plenty of room for me to grow within the company. I'm empowered to make decisions and act autonomously, which is something I have found to be very rare at other companies. The cross-collaboration between various teams (marketing, product, design, engineering, BD) is extremely refreshing, and the emphasis on team before self is crucial in our ability to execute on ideas and vision.

    The executive team works hard to makes themselves accessible and really likes to attend team functions and outings to get to know the staff outside of the office. I am often surprised about how candid the leadership is about the company roadmap and future, something that is often hidden from employees.

    The company culture is probably my favorite part about working here. The team is fun, hardworking, driven, and I already consider many of my colleagues friends. The values of innovation, accessibility, career development, and transparency come through in day-to-day life here.

    It also doesn't hurt that we moved into a killer new office in SOMA shared with Airbnb and Pinterest.

    Cons

    Some growing pains as the transition from startup to a more corporate company, post-Concur acquisition, but that's to be expected in any acquisition, acqui-hiring, etc. type of situation. That being said, in my opinion, the company functions in between a startup and a corporation.

    I have been working at Concur full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    When I first joined the company it was described by leadership as "a 20 year old company that is behaving like a start up." This is a fantastic description. The company is always focused on forward progress, meaning the work never gets stale. Every employee is encouraged and expected to grow as an individual and everyone's opinion counts. This creates an open and honest culture that fosters innovation and encourages the opportunity to challenge the "old" and invent the "new."

    Within the office the environment is engaging and VERY friendly. I was surprised at how genuinely friendly people were. I had not experienced this in my previous jobs and it made the transition very smooth. You don't have to be afraid to ask questions when you don't have the answers and because of the talented workforce you never have to go very far to find the solutions.

    The company also is not afraid to recognize where it needs to improve and face those challenges head-on. That type of corporate culture works to inspire teams at every level work to improve their own performance.

    The vacation package and maternity/paternity leave packages are excellent. Work day flexibility makes a work-life balance possible.

    I would recommend a career at Concur to anyone and everyone that is interested. I couldn't be happier with my decision to join the company.

    Cons

    There appears to be a struggle to maintain the headcount level in some areas. While business grows the number of available heads hasn't always kept up. That mixed with natural attrition means that some teams are understaffed.
    That said, if you are considering a career at Concur, this means that we need your talents! Positive growth always means opportunities.

    Pros

    Great Company, amazing innovation and growth. Upper management cares about their employees and it shows in benefits and compensation. Huge opportunity for sales because we are leading the world in the direction of employee spend managment, there is always something more to sell

    Cons

    We move very fast so keeping up can be tough. You have to be flexible and have the ability to move quickly or you will be left behind.

    I have been working at Concur full-time

    Pros

    People and culture here are amazing. I enjoy being surrounded by people that push me to do my best and set stretch goals. You have all the support you need from leadership and your peers here to be successful and the platform of products speaks for itself.

    Cons

    There is a lot of change here so employees need to be very comfortable with consuming large amounts of information, staying on top of industry trends and changing direction frequently. Training is self directed for the most part and you must be self motivated. I do not think these things are cons, but need to be understood.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase compensation and recognition to non sales employees.
