    Pros

    Growth opportunities in the HR/Talent Space. Product is very good. Working from home culture is excellent. Management all industry heavyweights and very supportive. Fantastic on boarding and very high earnings potential.

    Cons

    Too many new Sales People and not enough Sales Management in place to support growth but this is changing. Lots to learn and takes time to get to fully ramped - 12 mths plus

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work and we need more of you to reduce ramp time. Need to plan more for 12-24 timeframe not just this and next qtr.

    I have been working at SuccessFactors full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    It is not an easy place to get a job, but it is so worth the effort. My colleagues and our leadership bring passion and intelligence to a complex set of business problems and we have proven out, when done right, it drives great things for companies. Not only do we make our customers better employers, we apply the technology ourselves, in a way that makes it easy to focus on the most important things, and to see real time feedback on achievement. It's a beautiful thing.

    Cons

    It's not easy to get a job here - the folks doing the hiring are serious about screening people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the enthusiasm and the transparency. It's appreciated. Stay committed to the customer experience!

    I have been working at SuccessFactors full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexible working conditions, my manager is very helpful and receptive to issues I have. The people I work with are all very supportive and helpful.

    Cons

    Lots of different systems to log into (Okta is resolving some of this). Not all processes are ironed out. The company has grown so fast that policies and procedures are now trying to catch up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to develop the individuals on your teams.
