    I have been working at Fieldglass full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Great culture; very open and collaborative, social activities, weekly beer carts, stocked kitchen, unique office
    - Good benefits; 401k matching, discounted shares, 25 PTO days, etc.
    - Good learning experience, especially for new grads. You will get to work with extremely intelligent people who are willing to help when they can. There are also opportunities to switch departments depending on what skills you've polished and where your interests are

    Cons

    - Poorly planned/staffed projects; sometimes you will hear of a new project and have to go on site with little to no background and the client/partner will expect a quick turnaround. Projects are being rushed to start implementation when they are not ready, and the internal project team suffers as a result
    - There is more pressure put on internal hires/tenured employees because the ramp up time for new hires can be very slow. It can seem like managers tell everyone that they are doing an awesome job, so employees feel there is no difference between those who do great work and those who are mediocre

    Advice to Management

    Invest in professional growth, set your teams up for success, recognize your valued employees (and compensate them), and don't be afraid to "hurt feelings" when employees aren't doing their job

    Pros

    The culture. They create an environment that encourages people to be creative when finding solutions that work best for the customers. At the same time they are challenging the individual to be their best version of themselves. They also allow a great work/life balance that allows us to work harder when there are tight deadlines.

    Cons

    There are times when you have to work over weekends, but that is rare.

    Pros

    Flat out just a great place to work. The company has a great culture. Down to earth people who enjoy coming to work every day, Managers who really listen, who get it, challenging work in a growing company, lots of stability with SAP as our parent company, many avenues for advancement and career growth, and perfect work life balance.

    Cons

    A large office can create a lack of cohesion. I rarely a lot of the office employees unless they sit near me. The work is not silo'd, but would love to see more office outings or lunches to interact with more employees.

    I have been working at Fieldglass full-time

    Pros

    The transition from Fieldglass to SAP Fieldglass has been great for employees as well as customers. The career opportunities afforded as a result of the tremendous growth have been beneficial for current employees while allowing the company to bring on great team members from outside of Fieldglass too. Leadership is open and honest about growth, direction, and corporate goals. The SAP provided benefits are great including sick and PTO time, comprehensive health care, and Share Purchase Programs.

    Cons

    With fast and continuous growth, employees are expected to be up to speed quickly.

    Pros

    Generous PTO/sick day policy, coworkers are friendly and always willing to help, room for advancement within the company.

    Cons

    Little to no job feedback (whether positive or negative), which would improve the experience for all parties.The company seems to have shifted its focus from the happiness of their employees to the satisfaction of their clients since the acquisition by SAP.

    Pros

    Strong company culture within an industry leader with competitive benefits, great growth opportunities, and healthy work-life balance.
