Former Employee - Regional Sales Director in South San Francisco, CA

I worked at SuccessFactors full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

The company used to be transparent, open, full of team work and spirit. The good ole days are gone.

Cons

SAP really took over the company culture to start 2014 and it has been a train wreck. There is no SF identity anymore. SAP is completely disconnected to SuccessFactors market needs, they have just been making the company more SAP like....but they could have stood to gain much more if they leveraged SF strengths more effectively.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop trying to make SF, SAP. The company was awesome and had great market presence before you began bleeding it.

    Good product lines, great people, lose a bit of its focus after being acquired by SAP.

    I worked at SuccessFactors full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great people, can-do attitude shared around most functional groups. Cloud is in the company's DNA. This is a place to be to learn as much about Cloud products.

    Cons

    The environment is too distributed, your team likely spans 3-4 timezones/countries. Not all teams match the demands, which caused quite a bit of conflicts. Quite a bit of "protecting my territory" around groups/teams. The company lost its focus & agility post SAP acquisition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Watch out for those single-point-of-failure situations. There are quite a few of that.

    Former Employee - N/A in San Francisco, CA

    I worked at SuccessFactors full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good pay - but does it matter when there is nothing but a self-promoting, backstabbing culture.

    Cons

    Politics, self-promotion, every person for themselves, old hardline Oracle-style dog eat, dog world.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None - it's over for them! The management team (from the beginning and whatever is left) is focused on one thing - how do I ingratiate myself to SAP management? Nothing else matters to them.
