Pros

Culture of execution. We believe we can do anything. It's not perfect but everyone believes in what we do and the value our solutions provide.

Cons

Lots of change. Comes with the territory in the software world. If you're not changing and evolving, you become stagnant. We are definitely not stagnant.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take it easy on all the change at once. Talk to the people that have been around from the beginning to make sure you don't lose the culture which is our DNA.

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

    Pros

    Lots of excitement, autonomy. Access to corporate executives. Amusing emails from CEO almost every day. Decent pay and bonuses.

    Cons

    Ridiculous pace and 180 degree about face turns almost weekly. Poor processes and immature management. The bragged about "no jerks" corporate value is a big crock of poo-poo. Wide ranging differences in pay even within the same department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Slow down and be nice! You can be competitive while still treating people decently.

    Pros

    Great place if you are in the right position. Compensation and benefits good. And people generally nice.

    Cons

    Very easy to get pigeon holed into a position, and very tough to get out of. Growth is bad. Not everywhere, just in PS. Time sheets and expense reporting very cumbersome.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many mid-level managers. This needs to be thinned out.
