It is a very open, honest culture with a team that heavily supports each other.

Pros

Learning experience - on the cutting edge. Everyone is extremely helpful and giving. Culture is open, honest and all cards on the table. Pay is good, benefits are great. Cloud computing allows freedom to work remotely.

Cons

Extremely fast paced, everyone is pushed to the edge to get high billable client time. Very little time for maintenance of self or any "out of the box" specialties the clients should have. Get it done, get it done, get it done. And we do.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire more help. Encourage work/life balance. Technical writers to document software changes/directions is absolutely necessary.

    I have been working at SuccessFactors

    Pros

    - good people as co-workers
    - flexible leave benefits

    Cons

    Constantly accumulated technical debt has brought further development to a stand still. It seems that there is more backtracking than any forward momentum in the product. The decision to grow by acquisition would have worked if there was a focus on assimilating and integrating the newly acquired companies but it's almost as if the management expects technical challenges to be magically overcome without dedicating any resources or setting any organizational direction towards achieving that goal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For a company that manages employee performance and motivation for thousands of other companies you should learn from them and treat your employees with more respect. I'd recommend a complete overhaul of your Human Resources function which treats your employees at par with other companies in your domain.
