Nepotism runs rampant at Concur!

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Redmond, WA

I worked at Concur Technologies

ProsConcur is very friendly, overall has good benefits (although their maternity leave sucks), and if you're in the right position (sales) you can do very well both professionally and financially. They are a growing company, so they can offer you job security and financial stability.

Cons"Revenue generating" (a.k.a. sales) employees are really the only staff who are fully appreciated, recognized, and rewarded. "Non-revenue generating" employees (a.k.a. marketing, accounting, etc.) receive low salaries, miniscule pay raises (even when they are promoted), and are not allowed to attend the annual internal conference because they are not important enough. Sales continues to increase in head count, while all the departments who support sales remain the same and are therefore overworked and under appreciated. Nepotism plays a huge role in getting hired at Concur - you have to know someone to get your foot in the door. Your position has nothing to do with how much you know or have accomplished, and everything to do with who you know (or who you're sucking up to).

Advice to Senior ManagementRecognize the departments who work to support your sales staff as important and increase the head count - you'll continue to lose good people if you over work them. Hire and promote people based on knowledge and experience, not because they are a friend of a friend or someone's relative. It's frustrating to work for someone who knows and does half what you do for twice the pay all because they knew the right person to get them in that position. I know several instances within the company where this exists and it kills the employee morale.
