Good learning and Career growth

Lead Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Bangalore

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

ProsOpportunity 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.

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

Advice to Senior ManagementHR 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

Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Bangalore

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

ProsStill 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.

ConsPoor 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 Senior ManagementStop 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Good work culture, but hectic

Lead Engineer (Current Employee)
Bangalore

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

ProsHas a very good and informal work culture. This is in engineering and I am not sure, if this is the same in other groups. The product development life cycle is structured such that it works like clock work. Come hell or high water, releases happen on time.

ConsVery hectic in some product groups. The product development life cycle is structured such that, there is hardly any time left from one release to another release

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue with the small company culture, even after the integration with SAP

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
