    Great Company, Innovation at the speed of light. Needs more process to be oriented, which it will be now that SAP has acquired. Pure SAAS company with alot of room to grow.

    Leadership is lacking since SAP acquisition. Work and workplace are very hectic, but that is slowing down since SAP aquisition.

    Pros

    It is not an easy place to get a job, but it is so worth the effort. My colleagues and our leadership bring passion and intelligence to a complex set of business problems and we have proven out, when done right, it drives great things for companies. Not only do we make our customers better employers, we apply the technology ourselves, in a way that makes it easy to focus on the most important things, and to see real time feedback on achievement. It's a beautiful thing.

    Cons

    It's not easy to get a job here - the folks doing the hiring are serious about screening people.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the enthusiasm and the transparency. It's appreciated. Stay committed to the customer experience!
