    -quite a bit of executive leadership change since acquisition, which is unnerving for many

    I have been working at Concur

    Pros

    The executive leadership team at Concur is the best I have ever experienced. Their positive energy feeds down through the management team. Communication is transparent, and I have always understood that I can (and should) reach out to anyone I need to within the organization to reach both our goals as well as the client's. I love the culture of Concur. It is fast-paced, and ever-changning, so don't bother applying if you can't keep up! We don't sit still. Being a technology leader takes committment, lots of effort, and determination. It's not always easy, but the results are incredibly rewarding!

    Cons

    Client Support has challenges with resources. We need SAP to really help us in this area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    PLEASE don't let the SAP acquisition change our culture! It is what we all love about Concur.

    I have been working at Concur

    Pros

    I've been at enough companies in my career to know that no place is perfect. But the founders did a nice job building a positive culture of "people you want to work with" - almost everyone I've worked with are helpful, positive, and just genuinely good people. Tons of folks have been here a very long time, which speaks to the culture. Still feels entrepreneurial in spite of its growing size.

    Cons

    Sometimes the folks that have been there a long time cannot realize there are other, better ways of doing things. They aren't resistant to change, they just don't have exposure to other methods and processes. Company has under-invested in internal infrastructure. Needs to put some $$$ toward systems, processes, data/analytics, and some back office things to help with the growth and future scaling

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't lose the culture with the SAP deal! Fix the infrastructure issues!

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

    Pros

    The people & culture at Concur are phenomenal. They hire great people and it shows. Once you are in the door Managements goal is to develop the staff and help you grow within the organization. They are great at rewarding the Sales Team and they always are providing fun incentives. I hope to stay at Concur for a very long time!

    Cons

    It is a fast paced environment. If you are not one for change– this is not the Company for you.

    I have been working at Concur

    Pros

    Very friendly place to work. Interesting projects, not much room to grow career wise. Company has been acquired by SAP.

    Cons

    Parking is not easy. Monthly rate can be high. Company does offer some compensation toward parking.

    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.

    I worked at Concur (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great product, great benefits, some really great people. The customers are very happy with the product and innovation. Lot of long term employees

    Cons

    It is pretty political, A lot of it is about who you know if you are going to move forward and one manager's bias is passed to others. Leadership doesn't really want people who don't always agree with them.

    Pros

    TripIt from Concur, is a great place to work. I am constantly challenged and impressed by the passion and knowledge that is present here. The leadership really wants you to be successful, no matter what that means. There are many times in which you are given a project and they let you run with it. With our recent acquisition by SAP I'm excited to see what happens next.

    Cons

    Sometimes you are just thrown into things without much explanation or background.
