I have been working at Concur full-time (less than an year)

Pros

This company strives on innovation culture and team work. Excellent opportunities for growth and innovation. People are amazing. Clear goals and objectives, very less politics. Senior management and top leadership are excellent. Heirarchy is literally flat, so dont have to do show off to get visibility. You do good work you get rewarded, as simple as that. The travel and expense industry has huge potential for growth and so is this company

Cons

Parking/ cafeteria and benefits. None of which are a deal breaker.

    Obsolete technology stack and spaghetti code mar an otherwise good company. Don't join if you are a software developer

    Pros

    As far as travel and expense booking tools go, it is number one in the market. With contracts with the US government, french government, and big companies such as google, microsoft, boeing, jp morgan, and american express just to name a few, Concur is dominant.

    The corporate culture is good. There is work life balance, everyone is friendly, and the benefits are good. 21 paid time off days is quite generous.

    Cons

    Concur is using an obsolete technology stack and is not making any progress toward getting rid of it. Its a career dead end for developers. There are over a million lines of classic asp in the legacy code base with thousands of new lines of vbs added every month. It is quite spaghetti. Very few people understand it, and even people who have worked there for many years can't answer questions about features that they wrote. New hires are going to struggle and spend days writing one line fixes for simple customer cases, because debugging the code is a nightmare. It is not cleanly structured, meaning business logic and UI logic are mixed together inside functions that span thousands of lines. There are no coding standards or conventions in the asp code base so even reading it is difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the asp code base. Get rid of XSLT. Get rid of outdated javascript frameworks like ExtJS and prototypeJS. The current architects are using new technologies like asp.net MVC but are using them to simulate classic asp to avoid dealing with compiled code. Hire a full time build manager to get around this issue.

    I have been working at Concur full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Concur is a 'nice' place to work, they don't work on the principle of using you up and throwing you away. It is more of a relaxed atmosphere. They pay a 10% bonus pretty reliably.

    Cons

    Oppourtunities to advance are limited. Salary increases are limited to cost of living. No opportunity for stock options

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to think about the little people who make the big people big.
