Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at SuccessFactors full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

- Very strong Talent suite
- powerful sales machine. Able to sell vaporware better than any company I know.

Cons

- Tremendous low morale, at least, at the San Mateo/SSF office
- oblivious to technical challenges. Their solution is to throw more people at difficult to solve problems, and often incompetent or mediocre people.
- Difficult to hire in the San Mateo/SSF, being exacerbated by the high rate of attrition.
- As expected, projects are moving offshore to either Shanghai or Bangalore; not by choice, but by necessity.
- The SAP acquisition only made matters worse

Advice to Management

You have a tough road ahead. I hope you recognize it.
