    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.
