    I have been working at Concur for more than 8 years

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    We've grown incredibly fast. The structure isn't totally scaling to the massive amounts of growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I'm really proud to be here, and am grateful for all of the opportunities I've been given.

    Pros

    This is a very communicative and friendly envoironment.
    Team work is a way of life here.
    Growth and personal development are strongly encouraged and supported.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lets keep the growth and dedication to our clients going in the right direction.

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

    Pros

    The team I work with and my ex-manager were awesome. That makes a big difference in motivation and work choices.

    Cons

    There are some people who take advantage of being in a senior position to sort of harass the ones who don't choose to climb the ladder.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Owners are great, but then some senior management in sales is not really carrying the owners' work culture forward. Happens.

    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 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.

    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.

    Pay, People and Ability to work from home.

    Cons

    Management team does not know what they are doing, They are a technology company and half the time we had our system malfunction...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    COMMUNICATE WITH YOUR Employs, Communication was a HUGE issue, we tried to contact other team members and they would not respond to us. Very frustrated.

    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...
