    I have been working at Concur full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Culture is incredible! I've never worked for a place that cared as much about their people as Concur. Innovation engine is unbelievable here! I'm humbled to work with some of the smartest people in the world.

    Cons

    Very little to complain about. Some typical growing pains re: processes and infrastructure but aside from that, I feel blessed to come to work here every day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate frequently! Your passion is inspiring and pushes us to reach greater heights. If you want to carry that momentum, be constantly visible. Especially using webcast for the remote offices.

    Pros

    Despite rapid growth over the last few years, the company has done a good job of maintaining it's culture and focus on it's core objectives - which includes hiring and rewarding great people.

    Cons

    There have been growing pains, and there is lots of work to do to meet the aggressive goals. Overall compensation is pretty good; however, healthcare benefits and 401K could be much better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure to keep focused on being truly innovative, and not accepting "good" when "great" is within reach.

    I have been working at Concur full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Concur is a highly desirable employer and leader in the SaaS Corporate Travel and Expense space. Benefits are competitive and one can enjoy a work/personal balance here. Really like working for my manager.

    Cons

    Highly leveled, many layers of management. Recent announcement of SAP will change the culture of the company, just not sure how much yet.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Depending on the degree of autonomy with SAP (when that acquisition goes through), consider a flatter organizational structure.

    The people. Hands down. It's the people that make this place an amazing place to be. I want to be here, and have since the day I started 9 years ago.

    Some internal system changes occur without any explanation of the benefit to the employee or the company and then they are occassionally reversed.

    I have been working at Concur full-time (more than an 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 full-time (more than an 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.

    I have been working at Concur as an intern (less than an 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.
