Current Employee - Not fun in San Mateo, CA

I have been working at SuccessFactors

Pros

good technologies, good location wise

Cons

Simple word. "politics".Work culture and environment and people are placed such that.
Most importantly company doesn't know why there is such high attrition rate. Managers take side and favoritism.
They dont care if 10 people leave in a team.. to keep 1 good old guy happy.
People have potential and can contribute.. but are limited by Management Politics and upper people trying to keep their status quo.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Practice what you preach.

    I worked at SuccessFactors

    Pros

    Above averege pay.
    professional work culture.

    Cons

    One of the worst attrition rates I have ever seen. Senior management dosent care. They simply acquire. If you are looking to work on the latest and greatest technologies then stay away from SuccessFactors. Most of the people are fixing bugs. I can't speak for other departments but its not an exciting company for developers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on engineering. Build a better engineering management or else you will become another Palm or Nokia. The talent and products you build is what will keep you competitive. Not just selling anything like a maniac.

    I have been working at SuccessFactors

    Pros

    As advertised there are no asseholes, the work is easy, the hours are good

    Cons

    There is no team atmosphere. I'm not sure why they keep a boston office as nobody is present especially management. From what I've seen there is little career growth and the base salary is very low
