    great culture, pay is good, good benefits. Customers are very positive about the solutions.

    The recent sales leader from SAP are asking employees to do more with even less, higher quotas with smaller territories, less resources, migration to SAP systems is a nightmare, big company bureaucracy.

    Pros

    Good company with a lot of upside. The benefits are great.. especially the bonus. SAP acquisition means more opportunities. Flexibility and virtual work environment.

    Cons

    Not so much.... but SAP acquisition also presents some challenges and could see so restructuring. The training and education reimbursement programs could be improved.

    I have been working at SuccessFactors full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Used to be great culture. Dedicate Engineers, Sales and Supports. Very business driven. Customers are happy with our produce and service. Flexible work from home schedule.

    Cons

    Technical debts. Data center operations lack of automation, not like a real cloud company. Bureaucracy brought in by acquired company and SAP.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of a few rotten tomatoes. Lead SAP toward Cloud business rather than got dragged back by SAP legacy. Investing on tech infrastructure more.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
