    I have been with SuccessFactors for more than 3 years and the culture of this place is amazing. Very nice team members all around to help you learn and collaborate. The technical aspects of the work are challenging

    Pros

    Work is on good software stack but they are moving to SAP propertized softwares.
    Nice people.
    Work is redundant.

    Cons

    Bad pay and perks.
    The upper level management is bad and does not support a quick rise of the employee nor do they encourage a rise at the appraisals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve the pay.

    I have been working at SuccessFactors full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Opportunity to learn Cloud , SaaS , Multitenancy architectures etc.
    We get to work with a fun and smart set of people.
    After the SAP acquisition, it has become even more apparent that Cloud is the preferred strategy for SAP and hence, growth of the SuccessFactors products and teams has been accelerated.

    Cons

    Very hectic. Software release schedules are so tightly planned that, there is not much buffer to deal with unplanned vacation/emergencies etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    HR needs to be people centric and approachable to employees. HR should know how to deal with engineers and people from diverse backgrounds.

    Autocratic and Selfish Management - After acquisition it is "I" and not "WE" from India Leaders

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

    Pros

    Still have some good colleagues left..have been working here for 2 years but slowly seeing technically strong people hired earlier leaving. Hiring standards have gone down drastically.

    Good products and great customers. But miss the company i joined.

    Cons

    Poor facility, security double up as facility and try to police, no transport for employees, no democracy and always double standards

    Favoritism prevails and succeeds. Regionalism is at its peak. Not recommended.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop favoritism and open eyes.. provide better facilities and better work environment and better place for employees. Hire technical managers and technical stalwarts rather than friends.
