I have been working at SuccessFactors as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

Great start up feel for such a huge organization. Middle management teams are decent and tend to be hard working and supportive of their direct reports. The pay is market consistent and benefits include free lunch 3 days a week, on site gym and shuttle service. Facilities are beautiful!

Cons

Upper management is terrible, not interested in employee satisfaction or human asset retention. Lars is almost unbearable as a CEO and has lost touch with the reality of who is actually doing the work to support the company. He spends more time name dropping and talking about his private helicopter than paying attention to the actual company. Contractors are not turned over to employees because it pads the per capita revenue numbers.

Advice to Management

Hire people! You lose the best of the bunch when you keep 80% of teams as temp employees for years. Pay more attention to internal infrastructure and growing the groups who support the increasing business so you don't work people to death.

    I have been working at SuccessFactors full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Beautiful applications that can really add value to an organization. SAP is fully on board and investing in SuccessFactors. Great people to work with in virtually every part of the organization, the way the Solutions Consultants support each other is unparalleled. A market leader in every aspect. Lars!

    Cons

    Don't really practice what they preach. Like every other company out there, there is a lot of CYA. Still runs like a start up, but in the wrong areas. On boarding is challenging, but getting better.

    Advice to Management

    Take inventory, use your own applications and find your top performers and reward them appropriately. Practice the values that are written on the walls of the office in every way.

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

    Pros

    Career opportunities are plentiful and the work is exciting. Their management team is very inclusive and supportive. The compensation and benefits packages are very rewarding. Many positions are virtual opportunities and work remotely from home.

    Cons

    Due to the start-up culture that has driven SF to excellence, all employees pull more than their full share of the workload. Long hours, day and night...this combined with customer demand really kill the work/life balance.
