Pros

Excellent pay. Flexible work hours. Up and coming company, purchased by SAP to help them save their Cloud strategy and future revenue opportunities.

Cons

Not enough resources - technology AND people. SAP's way is not the only way or often even the best way to get things done. Internet is ALWAYS going down / getting interrupted - something bad for a Cloud based company. Tools don't work consistently; lots of manual work-arounds. Passwords always requiring resetting. All these factors interrupt productivity, which is sad in a high tech company. Many frustrated by high growth requirements, and little funding of the personnel and tools to support growth goals. Contractors are great, but if you don't hire in the support positions (Finance, Marketing, Administrative) you will burn people out. Telling workers to get out if they raise issues which they feel should be addressed is not rational.

Advice to Management

Stop saying you won't tolerate jerks when you don't take your own advice. "Collaborative" work style is anything but... you can't avoid the noisy chaos of co-workers who sit less than 2 feet away to either side or in front of your desk in a workbench type environment. The rate of managers and workers being turned off and driven out following acquisition by SAP is normal, but don't lie to us by saying that the rate of departure has slowed. It's the economy, stupid ! Many people are still looking.

    The promise of no a-holes doesn't apply to upper management

    Pros

    Great people from all over the world Opportunity to transition to the bigger Cloud players (reason for a positive rating on career opps).

    Cons

    Poor Management..."No Jerks" policy does not mean that it's upheld. Here's company that preaches a great sermon but doesn't follow their own message. Their full Talent Management pitch is around employee engagement and motivating their workforce...unfortunately, managers don't use the performance and goal tools. Sales model is dependent on has extremely poor lead generation and marketing. Think "Game of Thrones" and HR = Little Finger (watch out).

    Advice to Management

    Use the tools that you sell for and use them the same reasons you say they're most effective for. Be open and honest with the sales team and collaborate with them versus giving directives and unreasonable ultimatums. Just because an employee has been in the company for a a long time...does not qualify them for a management role. Using your 360 tool and cross-referencing what the peers say about them, would be a great way to find this out.
