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

    Pros

    Good food. SAP work culture is far better than SF. Before joining team please do some R&D. You will be lied by hiring managers a lot.

    Cons

    Nothing new. Same old legacy applications. If you want to fix bugs join SF. Ratings are based on the number of bugs fixes. Too much micromanagement. All good talents left.

    Advice to Management

    Try something new.

    Cloud company.
    Platform is good place to work but nothing in India. All are in China

    If you belong to "T" group great place to work.All manager, directors are belong to "T" group.
    No manager want to take core work, all core work get done from China
    After SAP acquisition benefits are not great.

    Advice to Management

    Hire competent managers and promote based on merit rather than time spent in company

    Pros

    Good thing is you get to work across different technologies and learning curve is good for freshers
