    I worked at SuccessFactors full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Leadership is so scary of their positions and try to protect them by what ever it takes,

    Cons

    Unprofessional ethics & attitude from the leadership. Always keep their subords (Unskilled & lazy) to constantly lookout for any gossips in the organization,These lazy sub-ordinates can axe the new comers if they want any time by spreading -ve things on them to their bosses.

    Advice to Management

    Be positive and take the sub-ordinates comments/suggestions in a +ve ways. Don't let the people near you mislead with falsified information.Also don't let the people laid-off b'se you felt like you are suggested better one's on your un-ethical, lame, outdated practices.

    I worked at SuccessFactors full-time

    Pros

    Nice colleagues, slightly above average pay, commuter benefits, free food, office location, being part of SAP gives company access to lot of resources.

    Cons

    This company drinks its own Kool-Aid. Instead of digging out deficiencies & working on solving them, the management across the company spends more time building powerpoint slides to show why SuccessFactors is the best cloud company in the world. I think they come up with these metrics to secure their bonuses for the year. The reality is that Successfactors is nowhere close to being the best cloud player and it will take quite a bit to get there. In the long run this will be a more serious issue.

    Advice to Management

    Raise management standards and don't turn a blind eye or reward poor management. Pay should be based on performance.
