    Pros

    Great culture. Winning. Great products and levels of commitment. Good cross functional relations and willingness to be nimble. Deep SAP pockets will help with investment in products and access to SAP customers.

    Cons

    The SAP acquisition, by definition, brings change and a more hierarchical management style which is antithetical to how Successfactors head operated and succeeded.

    Pros

    Great pay - lots of investment in new products, both internally (CRM system) and in developing the different modules (new reports, new views, etc.) Lots of good energy and flexibility to work remotely.

    Cons

    Often times designated resources (engineers) aren't available for high priority items - as a Support Account Manager, you may be asked to look at code of forms, etc. to help move things along.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in getting back end processes aligned so front-end managers are not left in the cold!


  3. Solid product, decent gamble, irresponsible growth

    Pros

    Growing market and the opportunity to be part of a company that was interested in taking a gamble to capture it.

    Cons

    Too much propaganda and not enough realism. Most opportunities were given to those close to corporate.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the smart people across the company to help drive the strategy. Many of them probably know more then you would think.
