    Pros

    Great place to work. People are very friendly. Best job I ever had. Learned a lot in 5 years and hopefully can keep moving up.

    Cons

    Too many meetings- but that's a standard corporate thing. As the company grew, the small work environment got emitted with SAP's and it became harder to deal with processes.

    Advice to Management

    Better integration methods with the larger company in order to retain the work culture and positive environment without getting stuck into sales driven processes.

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

    Pros

    Generous benefits, PTO. Autonomy, ability to work remote, supplemented public commuting expenses.

    Cons

    Post acquisition, SAP has no concept of cloud technologies nor how to support. Successfactors had great company culture, good management and leadership. All this is gone and is handcuffed by outdated infrastructure and tools - taking far too long to get tasks done.

    Advice to Management

    Your best and brightest are leaving or have left. Invest in current management training and leadership. Not just warm bodies to fill the open roles.
