I worked at SuccessFactors

Pros

SuccessFactors has a high energy environment with VERY smart, talented, and hard working individuals.
Free lunch Wednesdays, HH Fridays, foozeball and pingpong tables/tournaments.
Above average salary and good benefits.
Shuttle to HQ from downtown SM for commuters.

Cons

Not a good work/life balance, CEO praises people for staying until 7-8pm.
Management is hard to get a hold of always in "meetings."
Culture is very go go go without taking the time to do things throughly this trickles down from Upper Management.
No room for career growth.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Actually listen to your policies of transparency, no jerks, and employees come before clients.

    Pros

    Casual dress work environment, can take off when needed, decent work environment.

    Cons

    very lax management, does not plan ahead/rushes at the last minute, and management will not take responsibility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not side talk out your mouth, you have no idea you are full of it and we know it. Offer more growth opportunities.

    I have been working at SuccessFactors

    Pros

    A great place to work where ppl are friendly and collaborative. Management was transparent and everyone was clear about how they contributed to the overall growth and success of the company.

    That was pre-IPO.

    All I can say now is that the company continues to be successful in the market and against competitors. Collegues are great though.

    Cons

    Very little opportunities for technical growth locally. This is not a technology focused company. No real focus on technology advancements. Nor any impression that the company is going to invest in new technologies either.

    Mid level management are useless. I have no confidence that management is looking out for my career growth.

    Little to no communication from upper level about the direction of the company. Company is mostly investing in offshore engineering teams to meet wall street numbers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Any advice to management would just fall on deaf ears.
