    Pros

    Good product, many very smart people, good colleagues, good interaction, and recognition for a job well done. Focus is on getting things shipped.

    Cons

    Focus is on things shipped, sometimes to the detriment of innovation or longer-term strategic objectives. Following the shiny objects sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    Don't alter course too often, let things get finished. Introduce true focus.

    Pros

    Strong culture, team-focused, room to grow and lead. This was a very supportive and transparent environment. I enjoyed my time there.

    Cons

    Lots of people left after the company was acquired, but the next chapter is still being written. I would still want to work there.

    Advice to Management

    Support the Cloud with all customers and emphasize that SAP will be there for the transition to from on prem to hybrid to all Cloud.

    Pros

    Amazing people, focus on innovation

    Cons

    SF had clear goals and mission. SAP created some confusion in roles and customer messaging, overall acquisition was good for both if they allow SF to continue to drive innovation and communicate clear purpose.

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

    Pros

    There's a new project to work on every three months, so things move at a fast pace. Good in a way because you don't tend to get bored working on the same thing. And there's always lots to learn. People in general are nice to work with and the company has reasonably flexible hours. You are allowed to work from home occasionally and there's no dress code. Situated in Reston just minutes away from Wiehle station and very close to the future metro stop. The company has a lot going for it.

    Cons

    Pay is relatively less compared to the market and they don't have great benefits in terms on bonus and company shares.

    Advice to Management

    Pay the employee what they deserve and promote based on merit and not the number of years spent in the company

    I worked at SuccessFactors full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    start up atmosphere, competitive products, great office, stable, acquired by SAP with large job potential, non political environment, cloud focus is future facing

    Cons

    the acquisition by SAP means continued challenges as the company is integrated into the SAP way of going, management structure, etc.

    Advice to Management

    keep the focus on cloud and the simplicity and ease of use that comes from cloud as SF gets more integrated into SAP.
