    Lack of innovation; poor management

    Pros

    - Good place to begin your career as a product manager or engineer
    - Well recognized brand with user base that loves the product
    - Financial backing from Concur

    Cons

    - Poor place to develop into mid-level or executive employee due to lack of innovation and mentorship
    - Engineers and product managers have recognized the lack of innovation, leading to several resignations
    - Poor product development practices: too many people who want to be product managers rather than focusing on their own responsibilities
    - Weak mid-level managers: Although they are nice, they do a poor job of being leaders and pushing game-changing initiatives.
    - Losing advantage to other competitors, who are continually catching up to TripIt

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have a difficult issue to solve. First step is to recognize that you have an issue; I remain unclear whether management at TripIt or Concur recognize the problem. Second step is to be more proactive in removing ineffective managers.

    At the end of the day, if you make no changes, TripIt will continue to function and the product will remain loved by end users. However, the company will continue to fall behind in terms of innovation.

    Pros

    Every day I get to deal with new challenges and be in a continuous learning environment! The culture is very supportive, willing to listen and work collaboratively. Competitive pay, generous time-off and lots of growth opportunity!

    Cons

    I love that every day is different, but with a rapidly growing organization there are times that the constant change can also be challenging.

    Pros

    People and culture here are amazing. I enjoy being surrounded by people that push me to do my best and set stretch goals. You have all the support you need from leadership and your peers here to be successful and the platform of products speaks for itself.

    Cons

    There is a lot of change here so employees need to be very comfortable with consuming large amounts of information, staying on top of industry trends and changing direction frequently. Training is self directed for the most part and you must be self motivated. I do not think these things are cons, but need to be understood.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase compensation and recognition to non sales employees.

    I have been working at Concur full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Trust in Executive Leadership is key. Trust by leadership, allowing employees to work from remote/home offices. Excitement around how Concur disrupts the industry!

    Cons

    The company has grown so much over the last few year, it's lost a bit of that "lovin feelin" but that is to be expected.

    Pros

    Great Company, amazing innovation and growth. Upper management cares about their employees and it shows in benefits and compensation. Huge opportunity for sales because we are leading the world in the direction of employee spend managment, there is always something more to sell

    Cons

    We move very fast so keeping up can be tough. You have to be flexible and have the ability to move quickly or you will be left behind.

    Pros

    Concur empowers all the employees regardless of the role to make the right choices, allow to make mistakes and learn from them.

    Cons

    Not really a con...
    Adapt to changes quickly & always be ready for challenges - if you are not that person Concur may not be the right place for you.

    Great people, great balance

    I have been working at Concur full-time

    Pros

    People are genuinely nice, collaborative and desire to succeed with you. I don't feel the internal competitiveness that I've felt at other places, it actually feels like we're all trying to accomplish the same goal. I had forgotten about the concept of "work/life balance" until starting here- people take it seriously and find a way to still get everything done. I highly recommend it.

    Cons

    Like any high tech company, there's A LOT going on and it can be hard to focus and prioritize. There are some people that have been with the company 15+ years, which is unusual and can create some resistance to change. But overall, extremely positive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For the first time ever, I can honestly say I wouldn't change anything.
