    I have been working at SuccessFactors full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Awesome attitude of staff. Everyone is positive and supportive. Really interesting industry. Highly challenging, complex, competitive sales cycles. requires staff to really dig in and learn. Good technology. Supportive executive staff. HCM, cloud space is exploding.

    Cons

    Very competitive space. Hardest sales job I have ever had. Must know the Human Capital Management space....or be prepared to work extremely hard to learn it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None really. Management is great. Maybe a little unsophisticated for such a large company. But not really an issue.

    Pros

    Collaborative work environment, decent pay, awesome products

    Cons

    Tends to starve resources. It is acceptable in a start up to have limited resources working around the clock to bring a vision to life, but at this stage, SF/SAP needs to properly fund and develop resources. Too many good people are leaving because of the unreasonable demands on personal time. Too many good leaders have left.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please invest in people. Adequate staffing levels are needed as are training and development for those that are here. Please stop trying to squeeze blood from a stone.

    Pros

    Great Product and a good package.

    Cons

    Lack of Leadership, constant change, SAP has made it a very difficult place to book business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to get your team in order, too many changes. SAP has totally lost the SuccessFactors culture. Need to focus on the customers.

    Pros

    There are a lot of smart people at SuccessFactors and the culture is well intended.

    Cons

    The merging of SAP into SuccessFactors is not smooth and it's not great to be a cloud person in an on-prem world.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less Churn - of accounts and leaders!

    Pros

    Benefits, Compensation and Semi-Flexible Schedule

    Cons

    The management is unstable and inexperienced; employees across the board are burnt out and no one appears to want to be there. The processes since the acquisition make it challenging to get things done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to manage
