    Pros

    Great place, great people.
    Good benefits
    Good work/life balance
    Telecommute

    Cons

    1.) SAP merger has made things more confusing as you now have to deal with 2 internal systems. Everything is very separate. For example, if you want to take a vacation day, you need to login to SAP's system (which is a pain) and do an endless search, which wastes time. Endless internal emails from both SAP and Concur and you have to make sure what you are reading pertains to Concur. Example: an email about Employee Stock Purchase sounded great, until you read the note stating: "Not for Concur Employees"..huh?
    2.) no concise place for info. Way too many places with too much stuff.
    3.) Expense rules and travel is treated like a second class citizen. New expense employees go to a boot camp training while new travel employees get a very basic "training" ( and I use that term loosely) with either their manager or a co-worker. Not sure why as the product is Concur TRAVEL and Expense. Lots to learn on both sides.
    4.) Too many meetings! How many team meetings are needed? Wasted time that can be better used working with clients.

    Advice to Management

    1.) Decide whether you are SAP or Concur. You can't keep one foot in the door and one foot out.
    2.) Put all internal docs and training on Wiki.
    3.) Treat travel with the respect it deserves. Pay travel employees equal to their expense counterparts, not less. A lot more facets to travel than expense, so why not, at the very least, equal pay?
    4.) Cut down on the numerous team meetings.

    Would be a good idea to create a program to help your employees who are hitting it rough, financial wise. Charity starts at home.
