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

    Pros

    1. $$$

    Very competitive salary/comp structure for an entry-level sales role. Plenty of opportunity to make great money at this position.

    2.) Company culture (best part of the job)

    This team is full of fun and smart people that you’ll actually enjoy working with. You’ll build friendships and make connections that will last for years.

    3.) Professional and personal development

    Sales, marketing, operations - whatever area you’d like to learn or develop skills, this team and position will provide you with the opportunity to do so.

    Cons

    1. High Expectations

    Expectations to perform and hit quotas are expected with such a competitive salary/comp structure. Shouldn’t be too much of a surprise to anyone interested in a sales role.

    2. Change

    Systems, processes, and personnel change often but that’s expected considering the nature of working at a tech company. Getting into a rhythm will take extra effort but overcoming obstacles in this role will prove to be extremely valuable experience that you will carry with you throughout the rest of your career.

    Advice to Management

    Upper leadership should sit and shadow reps more often. At least one Sr. Director every quarter should be spending a half day with an individual MDR/team. It’s an easy way to boost morale, and it’ll help fast track the systematic roadblocks that effect MDR efficiencies.

    I worked at SAP Concur full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Work-life balance... need a day away from the office? No problem.
    - Earning potential (base could be a bit higher though)
    - Tools available to succeed (software, territory partners, director, solutions consultant)
    - End of month/quarter energy and excitement
    - Solution consultants are very helpful and knowledgeable
    - Plenty of coffee and drinks in the kitchen, lunch provided for most days during the last week of the quarter
    - Directors want you to succeed and are willing to help out in any way

    Cons

    - At times the sales floor could be gossipy and felt like high school all over again
    - The competition is cheaper and at this point probably as good of a product if not better
    - Once SAP took over, key leaders left, some whom made a huge impact on the culture
    - Territory can be good or very bad
    - Little or no diversity on the sales floor

    Advice to Management

    Bring back the culture Concur was known for with inspiring leaders. Make it one product instead of Professional and Standard. Hire more diversity on the sales floor. Thank you for the opportunity!

    Pros

    The hype sounds great. If it were only true for all employees. Read between the lines.

    Cons

    There are a some in management who have been there forever and some who just shouldn’t be there anymore. In particular the ones who get by while treating people terribly, and gleefully climbing over the top of them at any cost. All under the guise of being so nice. In reality just very very weak people who should go. No value added management. Very threatened by and takes credit for the success of those doing the work. Some sent to foreign posts - But still there nonetheless. Just stay away. Some people can’t be trusted and are outright slimy.

    Advice to Management

    Snakes in the grass are still snakes. SAP is exposed to legal issues if this person keeps it up. You can’t un-ring a bell. And it is the me too era. Look at the VPs who have long bloody paths of turnover of top performers with cases that don’t sound right with severance payments. These people cost the company so much more than money and need to be cleaned out.

    Cons

    - Sometimes hard being a marketer inside a sales organization
    - Still work to be done on getting tools and processes where they need to be

    Advice to Management

    I love this team and I love Concur. I can’t think of a better place to be as a growing marketer and professional.

    Keep moving the SMN organization in the direction it is going. I’ve been on the SMN Marketing team 2+ years, and in the last 1 year we have seen a lot of very positive growth and change. Changes that needed to be made.

    For those of us that have been on the team for a while, it is refreshing to see where we are today. And my historical understanding of how and why we made past decisions is more valuable than ever before. I’m also being given opportunities that never existed for me before - like building a business strategy and presenting business results to stakeholders.

    Many new team members and new leaders that are bringing great ideas. My boss is one of them - and is the best!

    I am happy to see that we are embracing team diversity in the form of culture, backgrounds and skill sets as we hire. This has been a good thing for SMN and is a good influence on overall Concur culture. This is easy to see in the revived team atmosphere and great business results.

    I’ve appreciated the additional investment in communication & transparency across the team, and increased investments in career growth. These are areas that had been missing for me.
